This is an enjoyable task; do not rush it but, instead, take the opportunity to spend time with - and enjoy - your books. I do not paste plates into all of my books. For example, if I have a very valuable book, or a modern first edition that is in pristine condition, I usually lay the plate inside the front cover. Apart from this, I paste my bookplate into both books and portfolios. I suggest that you start by pasting a few bookplates onto paper or into cheap paperbacks until you get the hang of things. I would suggest that you limit yourself to about a dozen books for your first attempt.
