Follow Friday

Today's Follow Friday is hosted by Melannie at Parajunkee's View.

This week's question: When you've read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it . . . ?)

My answer: I'm a book hoarder. There's no hiding it. If you saw my bookshelves - wait, that's probably not a good idea. Just imagine a lot of books okay? hehe. However, while I have an obsession of collecting pretty books, but if I've bought a book that I read and didn't like, or if I was given a book that I've already got or also read and didn't like, I usually try and sell it at a fair price or give it away on my blog!

So, what about you guys? What do you do with your books?

Have a great weekend you guys!

  1. I'm exactly the same, except for the books I didn't like... I kind of just hide them behind the ones that I do... Giving them away is a good idea. It SERIOUSLY never occurred to me before today, and I know that is ridiculous >.<

  4. I usually giveaway any books that I dislike (to the library or whatever) and sometimes I have a Spring cleanming (that is never actually in Spring, but randomly throughout the year) and gather a bunch of books that I don't think I'll ever get around.

    Although I regretted that once, recently! I give away my copy of The Demon's Lexicon because it had been sitting unread in my bookshelf since last year. So I figured I'd let someone else read it. Then I read a review the other day that totally made me want to read it NOW and then remembered, OH CRAP, don't have it anymore. Seriously bad timing haha.

  5. Sarah: I do the same thing! Some books I probably will never read again or the unread ones . . . I always hide them.

    Sarah Brown: Yes! I know the feeling.

    Laura: Thanks for following!

    Brodie: I LOVE the Demon's Lexicon book! Great series. I still haven't read the third book, but the first and sequel book are fantastic reads.

  6. My Unread shelf is actually in my living room, so I don't hide them at all! My read shelf is hidden, you only get back to it if I am forcing you to read something I know you might like. Returning the followage!

  10. I'm a hoarder too. It really makes me sad when I have to give books away. Even ones I don't like! Have a great weekend :).

    @Brodie: You silly person! The Demon's Lexicon is AMAZING :P.
