Book Blogger Hop - 3/8/2019


Question of the Week:

Do you buy all your books? If yes, do you keep it all? If no, where do you source them? (submitted by Angelica @ Paperback Princess)

My Answer:

I buy books so I can share them with others, but I do not buy all of them.  I also receive books from publishers and authors.

If I really like a book, I will share only with folks that I know will take good care of them.

I give the not-so-favorites to the library for their annual sale or to the local hospital.

  1. I did a big donation to the library once but they kind of looked at me funny at the time. Like why was I donating books? So not sure whatever happened to those particular boxes. Nowadays I just drop them into a Little Free Library when it comes to getting rid of books--which is only like 5% of the time! LOL.

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop

    1. That is odd that they wouldn't want books.

      Thanks for your story, and thanks for commenting, Jessica.

  2. I get most of my books from publishers but will buy one if I don't get it. I don't keep them once I've read them.

    1. I like to keep mine so I can share. :)

      And I like to see my favorites on the shelf.

  3. I'm also a tentative lender. I hate it when books come back wrecked.

  5. I've mostly donated my books to my little rural library. I'd say most they put in circulation, but I've seen a few in their book sale too. I have started sending books to my litsy friends too. And of course I share with my daughter
