Here is this week's Booking Through Thursday question:
I weed out my books from time-to-time, but not down to my reading essentials. I probably have 1000+ books at the moment spread out between my house and my work desk (I keep a kind of library for people at work who ask). Most of the time my books are out-of-control though - just ask my husband. :)
When’s the last time you weeded out your library? Do you regularly keep it pared down to your reading essentials? Or does it blossom into something out of control the minute you turn your back, like a garden after a Spring rain?
Or do you simply not get rid of books? At all? (This would have described me for most of my life, by the way.)
And–when you DO weed out books from your collection (assuming that you do) …what do you do with them? Throw them away (gasp)? Donate them to a charity or used bookstore? SELL them to a used bookstore? Trade them on Paperback Book Swap or some other exchange program?
When I do get rid of them I either give them away on my blog (review copies and ARCs) or on Paperbackswap (my books) or take them to our used book store to buy more books for myself. I also plan to start donating some of my new hardbacks to the library. I just can't keep all my books and I'm looking to start paring down. This means I'm reading as fast as I can.
So what do you do?
