Feature & Follow Friday: Used Books

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Hey There! Welcome to Annette's Book Spot, and Happy Friday! Today Parajunkee & Alison's question is:

What do you do with your books after you are done reading them? 

Well, I'm fortunate because I work in a library. I really don't keep very many books, because I'm not much of a re-reader. And, if I do want to re-read something, I can just get it from the library! So, I donate most of my books to my library after I've read them. If they are ARCs, I really can't do that. So, I put those in a stack behind my desk with a sign that says to ask me. I let students take these, and they don't have to bring them back. I just ask them to pass them around to their friends if they want to. Most of them bring them back, though. I eventually just throw these ARCs away (or use them for "bookish" crafts) since I'm not allowed to donate them to a book sale.
I had quite a few more, but at the end of the year, a couple of my avid readers took a bunch of them for the summer!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend, and enjoy your summer! Come back soon...

  1. Great answer Annette! That is certainly convenient that you work at a library (makes giving your books away a lot easier!) and I love that you let your kids read the ARC's if they're interested!

  2. Hopping through. I volunteer at the library twice a week, but ironically I hardly ever check anything out anymore. Partly because Montana doesn't have the biggest library supply and partly because I check out ebooks.

  3. I'm a teacher so most all of my read books and ARC's go to my classroom library for students to check out.

  4. It's so neat you work in a library and can share with the students, Annette! I hope your weekend is wonderful!

  6. Hello! New follower. I pass my books onto the local schools or libraries - that is if I can bear to part with them!

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.
