As always, its time for another Follow Friday. This wonderful meme is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Each friday two blogs are featured in an effort to expand one's blog. Go and check out both of these sites to learn more!
Q: When you've read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it...?)
For me, there aren't a lot of opportunities to buy books. I live in a very small town that doesn't have a book store, and all the thrift stores that have small selections of books all have genres that I'm not interested in. The three hour drive to the closest good shopping sight though does offer a better book selection; Barns and Noble, along with some smaller book stores that are scattered all across the city. When I have the money on one of the trips I usually can stock up on two to three books, which is pretty good for me. Now, when I'm down with those I usually keep them, lend them to friends if they need them. They'll sit on my shelf for a good year or so, and by that point if they aren't memorable enough or I've read them enough to give them up, I'll give them to my grandma for her annual summer garage sale for other people.
My number one way of getting books though is through the library. No obviously I can't keep or donate or sell any of those books, but what me and a friend do do, is check out a good number of books, usually something between three to five and then we swap them. If we think the other should read the book we'll just give it to hem, and then get it back to return when they've finished (: It's always a fun thing to do.
What do you guys do with your books?
