Follow Friday!

Happy Friday, everyone (finally)! 


What do you do with your books after you've finished reading them?


This is gunna sound horrible, but I have pretty much hoarded every book I ever had. I have them all, and believe me when I say they're not going anywhere, ever. Usually when I finish reading them, though, I'll take them to my cousin (who is just as OCD as I am when it comes to books) so she can read them and give me her opinion on them. After she's read them, they either go one of two places: on a shelf, where they'll be on display for a while (usually my favourites go on the shelves) while the others go on a different shelf or into one of the boxes I have for my books (think one of those old trunks people used to put clothes in). 


Wow, I just read over what I typed and realized I sound a little obsessed. Oh well! What above you guys?


***Important: If you leave me your blog name (or just a comment on this post) I WILL follow you back NO MATTER WHAT! So even if I don't leave a comment, rest assured that I have returned your follow. Thanks guys! :)

  6. Hoarding isn't bad! I keep a lot of books, but I give some away too. So I guess I'm not a total hoarder. LOL

  7. Yeah another book hoarder! I do swap books I didn't like, but if I liked it, it is in my basement. I still have all my favorite picture books and childhood chapter books! Old follower.

  8. Sometimes it's hard to let a book go, I usually keep the ones I really liked.

  11. Sounds like you should apply for the hoarder show. ;) Actually I take that back. You should build a fort and really live IN your books.

  15. howdy, Old Follower. Sounds like you and your cousin should share a blog. I have seen some that are quite entertaining. One of my friends borrows my books but doesn't want to review them. I keep hoping since she is more analytical than I. Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

  16. Ha! I sometimes get like that, too. But if there is a book I really didn't like, then I'll send it off to the charity shop or something. But my favorites never leave my sight! :)

  17. I always keep the books I buy :) LoL probably because I can hardly afford to buy books, so when I do I make sure its one I love.

    That and I also go to the library too much for my own good LOL

    Love the blog and am now a follower :)

  18. Oh my! You actually HOARD books?! *gasp* So do I. It's sad isn't it? But we, like, need to do it. Right? My husband picks on me. I can't get rid of any of my books. I have to FORCE myself to try to get rid of some books to trade them at a used bookstore. I just got into doing that too long ago, but it takes a lot out of me and a lot to choose some to take.

    So it takes me FOREVER to get a good pile ready.... I even still have all my Wishbone books I used to collect.

  19. I donate mine to the library.. well not now, I have a Kindle.. but I donated all my paper books to the library..

  20. It depends on how much I love the book, honestly. A lot of them I keep, but some I trade on paperbackswap or other stuff.

    Old follower hopping through! :)
