Follow Friday~Blog Hop A Chance to Meet New Blogging Friends

Please follow Alison Can Read to find today's Follow Fiday list of bloggers to visit and exchange greetings.

You can also add your blog(s) to the link and have a following!

I think this is a great way to actually meet fellow reviewers who have similar interests in books and to establish connections with them.  It's worked for me incredibly well.

You'll find details for signing up for this event that takes place several times per month.

Nearly forgot:  Every time there's a blog hop, there will be a featured site and a question for the Friday.  This Friday's question is~
"What do you do with your books after you've read them?

I keep them for the most part.  Confess that I'm a book hoarder of the first rank.  My library is pushing us out of the house!  I've also begun to share them with my daughter who has now shown herself to be a serious reader; now that she's in her 30's, finally!  And, I share them with friends who are also serious readers. If I have duplicates, I give them away in "giveaways" on my blog. Because I believe "Books are our friends," a phrase I coined when I was in my early teens, I don't give them away randomly to swaps or such.  That's like dropping them off at orphanages to me!  LOL

Seriously, what do you do with the books you've already read??

I have some books from the time I was a teenager four decades ago. I usually keep all my non-fiction unless I'm completely done with that time period (e.g., the Tudors). Most of my mysteries end up at Goodwill or Friends of the Library, but I probably have a couple of hundred novels that I won't read again, but can't quite part with.

I wish I wasn't but like you I'm also a book hoarder! :) I have such a hard time getting rid of books, even books I know I'll never read again. New follower!

Thanks for stopping by. I am now following.
There is nothing wrong with being a book hoarder. I keep all of my books also. Hopefully I will get to the point of giving them away, but not now.
