Follow Friday (and Thank God....)

The Follow Friday question from Alison and Parajunkee is:


Question of the Week: When you've read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)

If it's an appropriate book for teens, I will donate it to my library. Unless it's signed. Then I have to keep it. I wouldn't mind donating those, except so many books get lost -- I'd be upset if some kid lost a signed copy.  Other books that I really enjoyed and think that I might read again, I keep. I donate some to our local public library for their book sale too. Unlike many "bookaholics," I really don't keep many books -- they are meant to be read!


Ginger at GReads! question this week is:

Most Popular: What blog post has gotten the most comments/activity on your blog this year?

I just published by 500th post on this blog, and it happened to be a giveaway post. This has been my most popular post, I think. The giveaway is still going on until Monday, so check out this post!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for visiting. I hope you will consider following my blog, if you are interested in books books books!

  2. Aww donating books is such a nice thing to do because then others can enjoy them, but I get way too attached to mine to give away. Great answer and happy Friday :)

    Here's my FF!

  3. Aw, I love your "books are meant to be read" comment...and now I feel guilty for being a book hoarder. *hangs head in shame* lol

    Happy Friday!

  4. Congrats (again) on the 500 posts. I used to be much more of a hoarder of books, but our shelves wouldn't hold them all and we ran out of space for more shelves. We finally had to start giving some away. It's still hard though!

  6. I've been thinking about narrowing down my library of books (which have grown tremendously over the years). Hopefully, I can finally let some of them go...

  8. I keep the books I'll read again and donate the others. :) But, like you said, I hold on to my signed ones.

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
