I am always buying books from the library resale shelf partly because I love a good deal but also because I have a hard time parting with my books. So my theory is if I don't want to donate mines then I shall buy in support.
I am hoping many of you are like me (Please say I am not alone in shelving all my pretty books) in the respect that if i love the book I want it to sit pretty on my shelf. I do lend them to friends and if I do not see it for months at a time that is fine... just as long as I know I have it so when I want to peruse again it'll be there.
Hardly do I reread cover to cover but I enjoy opening to my favorite parts and rereading.
So now you know that I hold fast to my books (regardless of my hubby saying 'there is no space' and I say 'get me an ereader then') my children, on the other hand, I donate theirs all the time.
After a while they loose interest and I give them away either to friends & family or to the library.
Of course, I do this little by little... giving and replenishing their shelves over time.
Take a peek at these assorted books ready to be donated:
These books were gathered from various sources. I purchased some but I was given the majority from Unlce Ron at my local library. I am a HUGE supporter of the library and he knows that I am
a WAHM and that I take care of many moms via church, the community, or the mom site I work for.
So I will be donating these to the moms to peruse and grab first then the left overs will be given
to a local charity or off to the library.
So what say you!!! Do you donate? or buy donated books?
What are your thoughts?
