Q: What do you do with your books after you’re done reading them?

I keep them! I have a bookshelf dedicated to finished books. If I really didn’t like the book, I’m still likely to keep it until a Big Brothers & Big Sisters decides to do a pickup in my neighborhood. Then I’ll give the book away. Yeah, I didn’t like it, but hopefully someone else will :)

But probably around half of the time, I have to return the book to the library. I love my library so, so much. 

What about you? What do you do with your books?

    I do the same thing, even with ARCs unless I really really really did not like the book, then I give it away. I’ve never borrowed a YA book before because my library doesn’t have ANY :( So I either buy all of my books, or receive some from publishers/authors. Your blog designs are really cute btw!

    I keep all of my books since my library don’t carry the books I read, or they don’t have the new ones. I tend to love all of them so I don’t really have a shelf for the bad ones, kind of. :)

    I usually don’t like having books on my shelf I didn’t like. I most likely have a giveaway for them :)

    I do something very similar except I normally give the books I didn’t like in giveaways I host on my blog!

    Totally love your blog! The theme is so awesome! Have you heard of the book Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea? It seems like it would be right up your alley! It hasn’t released yet but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it!

    I separate my finished and unfinished books too. The one in my office is all my finished books. I like to see how many books I’ve read. The unfinished ones I keep in a cabinet over my washer/dryer. I don’t like to see them because it reminds me how much I really don’t need to buy any more books.

    I love your little icons. Who designed them?

    Hopping through. I keep most of mine too unless it’s a library book. Then I’ll donate them or give them away unless I love them.

    I don’t know why I never thought of donating to Big Brothers & Big Sisters! I’m getting so many good ideas for what to do with my books from this hop – if only I can let them go, which is really hard for me to do – if I buy a book it’s because I loved the author or found an incredible deal. Otherwise it’s the library for me too !

    Kim,
    I love your little ghosts! So cute! I keep even the books I didn’t like. When and if I ever run out of room, I guess they’ll be the first to go. Here’s my FF for the week New Bloglovin follower.

    It’s too bad your library doesn’t carry any! That seems like a crime.

    It’s good that you can always pick out books that you’ll enjoy. It’s too bad your library doesn’t carry any of the books you like, though.

    I’ve thought about giving some away in a giveaway too. But then I’d have to pay for its shipping.

    I’m jealous! I wish someone in my family worked at a library (preferably myself).

    Hi Ashtyn!
    Thanks, I’m glad you like my blog :) I have heard about Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I look forward to it and even requested an ARC copy. Sadly, they reached their max giveaway by then :(

    Kim said:

    Usually, I only buy books that are highly recommended or I am well established authors that I know I like. Except when it comes to debuts, I usually prefer to buy them than take them out of the library.

    Yeah, ebooks are great, but I don’t like how you can’t lend them to other people (usually).
