How many books would it take to contain 350 terabytes?

Depends on whether you have pictures... (seriously). The words in a 500-page novel will generally fit in a megabyte. That means that 350 TB would be 350 million books. But one picture can be 50K, so a megabyte is only 20 pictures. In any event, more books than any 10 people can read in a lifetime.
