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 have an absolute obsession when it comes to my books. I keep them, all of them. Even if I hated the book, I will keep it and put it in a box that I have under my bed. The books I can re-read over and over go on my shelves, and I have a box for the rest. If I have doubles, I'll give it away. But that's about the only time I ever would. So, I guess I'm a book hoarder myself! - Kristen.

I'm with Kristen on this one. I keep all my books. I still have all the books I read when I was really little. The only difference is that I have about a gillion shelves in my room, they don't go in boxes under my bed. I need my own library! 


  1. What will you do once the space under your bed runs out of room? Returning your awesome followage!

    Beth ^_^

  2. I have a hard time parting with my books too.
    Love your blog!

  3. I was reading about Feng Shui and learned that you are not supposed to store stuff under your bed because it blocks energy from flowing around you while you sleep. But I think having books under there must be okay because you are surrounded with book energy :)

    I had the most insane amount of books until I started blogging. Now I'm hooked on giving books away!

  4. That box idea is pretty interesting. Once I get settled in my new place (im moving) I will definitely have to look into that. I definitely have one series that I wouldnt mind boxing away even if I will never part with it, I know Ill never read them again. LOL.

    Thank you for following my blog, I am a new follower of yours. =D

  5. Hi Kristen, thanks for following my blog. I'm following back! I love the look of your blog as well, and looking forward to reading your posts.

  6. It depends on how much I don't like a book. If I really dislike a book I will probably decide to throw it away. Whether I succeed at that is another question! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

  16. Hi there,
    Just returning the follow.

    I used to hoard all my books too, until I ran out of room and started tripping over some. Needless to say, all the books I hated went to someone else that may be more appreciative of them.

    Have a great weekend!


  17. Same here, I keep all the books. Only multiple copies of the same edition escape from my shelf :P
    And even the books I don't like. What if I might enjoy them in the future?

    Thanks for stopping by. New follower.

    Have a great weekend!

  18. I'm the same! I love seeing all the pretty spines on my bookshelf. It makes me so happy!

  20. Love your answer! Before I moved I was a book hoarder, but I had to give so many away. I am slowly becoming a book hoarder again though. Hope you have a great weekend!
