if I start now (at age 23) with the background knowledge of half a degree in maths and advanced highers all at A grade in maths, applied maths and physics.

Also, which areas of mathematics would be best to focus on?

this is just as a leisure hobby, maybe for 2-3 hours a day.

I have lots of maths textbooks, far too many to study, so I'm trying to sell a few off and trying to figure out which ones to sell.

I would say roughly the limit of the sequence \left(\frac11,\ \frac11+\frac12,\ \frac11+\frac12+\frac13,\ \frac11+\frac12+\frac13+\frac14,  \ \dots \right)

bizarre reasoning but clearly it depends on the type and size of books as well as the timescale (e.g from the age of 23 until you are ... ?)
