Follow Friday


Q: When you’ve read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)

I am very guilty of book hoarding. I just can't give them away. They mean too much to me, and since I tend to have a pretty bad memory when it comes to book plots (must be from all the gazillion ones crowded in my brain), I know that I can easily pick up a book and read it again. So, my room and the extra room designed as a library are packed to bursting with wonderful words.

I'm a book hoarder too! I even got more than a few doubles because I had the hardcover then loved the paperback! And in the instance of my classic faves it was vice versa. Have some paperbacks then saw these gorgeous hardcovers that I just had to have!

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!

I usually don't forget book plots, but sometimes I forget little details or funny sayings. So then when I read a book a second time, there are little surprises waiting for me.

Here is my Follow Friday post

I like to hoard books as well. It's hard to give them away. I just like to keep them all.

I completely understand your addiction. I keep almost all of my books too. The only time I'll give them away is if I have duplicates or when I plan on buying a different version (such as if I have the paperback and I'd rather have hardcover).
