help! where to start? where to go?

I have inherited a vast collection of mathematical textbooks. I want to learn as much about mathematics as possible but don't know where to start, I really have too many questions to even know which to ask or to expect them all to be answered.

Where to begin?, how much algebra should I learn before I need geometry or Differential Algebra, witch should I learn first Discrete Mathematics or Probability and statistics. There are also many books on theory, should I read these first or last or does it matter.

It seems as though there should be a textbook on how far to go into each subject before switching to another, or for that matter which subjects are heavily or lightly intertwined. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
