Q: What do you do with your books after you’re done reading them?
So, as an adult, I actually tried not to hang on to my books – I usually got them from the library (I felt like spending money on books was splurging). The few that I did own, I would trade on Paperbackswap after I finished reading them. (check out this link if you haven’t heard of Paperbackswap Join the Club and Swap Books for Free! – PaperBackSwap.com).
Now that I’m blogging, I’ve started to collect more books again. They’re on the bookshelf (or in my Kindle!).
Ironically, my kids’ bookshelves are stuffed to overflowing with books (even after we bought them more bookshelves!). Whereas I couldn’t justify spending money on books for myself, I have never had that qualm about spending money on books for my kids – fostering a love of reading is worth all the money in the world! 🙂
