It’s a book lover’s paradise.

Melba Whatley and her husband, Ted, have more than 10,000 books in their personal library in their Tarrytown home. Yeah, you read that right. Ten. Thousand.

According to Texas Monthly, their library is 2,400 square feet with multiple 10-shelf bookcases. And of course, since they’re so tall, there’s a sliding ladder so you can glide around like Belle from "Beauty and the Beast."
