    Re: as many sthing as you like

    ... as many as you like.

    The construction ... as [many/much] as ... is common.

    Take as much as you want.
    We want to see as many movies as we can at the film fesitval.
    She said I could help myself to as much as I wanted to.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
