Follow Friday


Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

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

If I own the book (store bought or an ARC) and I loved it then I may consider keeping it.  If I liked it but didn't love it, I will evaluate it in terms of age-appropriateness and give it to a friend's daughter who loves to read.  If there is no more room on my bookshelf, I might add it to a box to donate to the local library or school library.  Has anyone ever tried Book Crossing?  It is a great way to leave good reads lying around in random public places to be enjoyed.  You label your book inviting someone to pick it up and take it home, register it online and log it online.  Then you can follow it on it's journey!

  1. Hopping through. I definitely keep books that I love. I'm willing to get rid of books that I didn't but in reality they end up sitting on my shelf too.

  3. I can't give away any ARCs I receive, even if I didn't like the book; there is something too scared about it, kind of? Great answer though, old follower :D

  4. I've heard of Book Crossing and always dismissed it as something I couldn't do b/c I hate to let me books go, let alone not knowing they found a good home. But, I didn't realize you could track it - that's kind of cool! I might have to rethink it!

    bloglovin' and twitter follower!
