998 books

I’ve just ordered my 998th book, Joe Haldeman’s War Stories. This means that I need 2 more books to reach 1,000. One of the two books I’m already planning on ordering–it’s the one volume I’m missing in the 11-volume Story of Civilization series by Will Durant.

That means, I really only need one more book to reach 1,000 books in my collection.

I am open to recommendations for what that 1,000th book should be. I think it should be something pretty spectacular, but I’m open to pretty much anything. Anyone have thoughts or recommendations?
