What do you do with your read books ?
Most of mine I keep, wait until some time has passed and read them again. Any I don’t want to keep goes to my library 🙂
I keep them all..i won’t let anyone borrow them and I don’t give them away. I am a shelfish book hoarder, I full on plan to turn my children’s rooms into libraries when they move out. Lol
Lol I let people borrow mine but it’s with a “you know I’ll hunt you down and kill you if anything happens to my books” speech first.
Nope, I don’t even chance it…most of the people I know don’t even bring your dishes back so I know I’d never see my books again. Lol
Yeah there’s only three people allowed to borrow mine lol
I keep my books… I have 6 bookshelves in my house… My Husband calls me a hoarder ! Lol
That’s what I said !! A house without books has no Soul …
I keep the ones I loved, and trade the rest. 🙂
It depends on how much I enjoyed the book. If I really enjoyed it I keep it, if not so much I give to my local branch of the library.
My children had a bookshelf in their room when they were growing up, I donated them all to a Headstart school… Now I wish I had kept them for my Grandchildren…
The ones not in series I pass on to local or closest veteran hospitals . I think of all our veterans have done to keep us safe .
Give them away, trade, or donate.
I keep them, shelf them away, and one day read them again someday out of the blue when I cross them.
I give some away and keep others.
I let some people borrow them but they have to sign a paper that if anything happens to it the have to replace it.
Pass them on to family members but not my favourite authors.
I won’t let any books go and now after losing one book i’d had since i was a little girl (more than 30 years) after i loaned it to a little girl to read who then lost it 😢 and another to a neighbour who can’t find it, no one will ever borrow a book off me ever again, books are too important to me and matter way too little to others x
I know how you feel. If I lend one of my good books and don’t get it back I won’t lend books to that person anymore.
If i’d borrowed a book of someone see or anything for that matter and lost it or something i’d make a point of replacing it but others don’t seem to think like me when it comes to the property of others sadly x
Some I keep, some I swap with friends & others I swap on sites like paperbackswap
Keep them, all of them!!! What else?
I keep them all. I hope that one day there will be some young person around me which one I could teach how to love books… Also, when you live in a poor country you are naturally prepared for everything bad what may happened – so I collect them as more I am able, to have them in the worse times if those times ever come..
I keep some and sell the rest to 1/2 priced books so that I can buy more books.
Keep them and reread them 😊
Put them in the bookcase.
I reread them ❤️
Give the ones away to friends/family that I think would like them and donate the rest to the local library. I would rather people keep reading them and enjoy as I did.
Depends on the book. Sometimes will pass along the fiction. But usually like to hang onto non-fiction and classics.
Read them again
I bring them to Half Price Books and get money for them
I have a very hard time parting with my books so i keep them for when my children are older. And their children and so on
Keep them forever. Unless I didn’t like it. Like 50 shades and Twilight. Then I give them away
Keep them on a self, all nice and organized and oh so pretty lol
I donate some and keep others.
I trade them or go to the Warren book exchange on Mound Rd to get more.
I have a shelf or shelves rather filled with all my read books … they go as far back when I first joined the scholastic book club and received them in the mail…that was 1990 so my collection is pretty big
I keep some and sell the others on my garage sales.
i pass them to others or donate them to charities always
I keep them all.
Give them away unless they are very expensive history books.
I keep the ones I especially love. The others i donate to the county library.
Unless it’s part of one of my favorite series, I’ll loan them out, or sell them back to the used bookstore.
I keep all of them unless i couldn’t stand them. I never know if I will want to re-read them someday.
Keep them close to me like my friends
They are all my babies! I lovingly place them on their place on my shelf and there they shall stay til a TRUSTED friend would like to borrow it, or until i want to read it again 😀
It depends, I keep my favourites and give the others to the public biblioteque
keep them and read over and over again.
Depends on the book
Usually give them to Goodwill unless it’s my favorite author then I keep them
If the books are thick like twilight or harry potter, keep em!
