Musing Monday 11/25/13


Musing Monday is hosted over at Should Be Reading.

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

This week I am musing, and asking on what do you do with the books when you are done with them? I am actually also going to ask for electronic and hard copy. I admit in general I delete an electronic one when I am done with it. My theory for this is that it makes more room for others.

Hard copies well there is a variety of things I do with them, the biggest and most common is list them on Paperback Swap. I have a shelf that I keep all my paperback swap listed books on. If the shelf gets full and to many have not been picked out I donate them. Donating would be one of those other ones of course. Then there is what to do if the book is to old or to damaged, I have a couple of those. Those I re-purpose for crafts.

  1. I offer the books I’ve read to family and friends to go through and take what they want, whatever is left over goes to the annual local library sale each October. I’ve noticed the librarian sorts through them and sometimes keeps some of the books for the library. I guess I should offer them to her more than once a year. I’ll have to think about that one. I archive the books I’ve read on my e-readers.

  2. If I enjoyed a book at all, I keep it, because I’m a big re-reader. Plus, I love the look of books I’ve enjoyed on my bookcases. If I didn’t care for the book, I’ll usually take it to my local used book shop.
