Follow Friday (3)



Follow Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Follow Friday is an opportunity to discover and follow other book related blogs.

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 borrow most of my books from the library, so those I return (obviously). If the book is really good I will buy it so I can keep it to read again and again. If I read the first book in a series and I enjoy it I will start buying the series to keep. All of the books that I purchase I keep, which truly delights my husband. Only not really.

  1. Lol - I do the same thing with a series. I'll buy the first, and buy each one if I liked the one before.
    However, I dont usually borrow; I usually buy all of my books, and hoard them afterwards. At least you are helping preserve the environment, haha.

  2. I laughed about the husband comment. Mine says nothing about my six bookshelves but when he wants space on one of them I growl. He gets the hint and walks away...slowly.

    I only keep the few that I truly love the others are given away but I wish I could keep them.

  4. I think libraries are a great way to make sure you don't go broke buying books! I also buy the book if it's that good. My husband realizes that I'm a book hoarder and accepts it! New follower!

    My Follow Friday!

  6. I'm lucky that my husband likes to buy and keep books as much, if not more, than I do!

  7. New follower from FF! I have to laugh because I've tried borrowing from the library...but on my last try I was so late that it cost me hundreds of dollars in late fees. I told the librarian I was officially turning in my library card because I'm not responsible enough to get the books back in time! :P Takes me too long to get out of the house with tons of books!
    So, I purchase them, or beg them, or I get them from book sales locally. Once they are in my clutches, it's hard to part with them. :]
    Your blog is beautiful.

  9. I usually keep most of my books. While my boyfriend teases me, he supports my love of books. He even wants to build me a library in our future home.
