Follow Friday (20)

Welcome to Follow Friday Hosted

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..?)

I am what I fondly call a book hoarder (my mom calls it a book pack rat).  I buy books, I keep books, I'll occasionally loan books, and I will definitely get rid of the books I don't like.  Better yet, if I borrow a book, and I really like it, I'll go buy the book.  Or if I get one as a galley, and I really like it, I'll go buy the other books.  So that leads to the problem of the number of books I have.  I have so many books that, uhm, my book shelf broke.  So now they are all in books or in stacks around my house and storage unit.  So I guess e-readers are helping me save space :P!

So, what do you do with your books?

Happy Reading!



  1. I'm a book hoarder also! New follower :)

  2. Usually when I really love the ARC of a book I buy the finished copy, because I want to support the author!

  3. My family calls it being a "pack rat" too. But we are the friendliest rats, aren't we? LOL

  4. That's awesome that your shelf broke. Okay, not awesome, but an awesome claim to fame. :)

  5. I love to keep books as well. I find it crazy that there are book lovers that get rid of them after they've read them. I just can't seem to even imagine parting with all (or even half!) of mine. :P

    I'm a new follower. :)

  6. I'm a definate hoarder and I sympathise with the books on the floor and everywhere else, here's mine
