Musing Mondays: Giving/Keeping

Here's this week's Musing Mondays:

If you keep your books, where do you keep them? And, if you give them away, who do you give them to? . . . Are any of your books in storage due to not having enough space for them all?

I do keep my books. Books fill several bookcases, are piled on every horizontal surface, and are stacked on the floor. Some are in boxes in the attic.

When I give books away, I donate them to AAUW for their yearly book sale.

For other answers and the complete meme, see here.

I have books everywhere, too. And now that trend is spreading to my daughter's who have books EVERYWHERE.

I keep most of my books too! I've been meaning to check out BookMooch, but haven't done it yet. I have a hard tome letting go of my books. I LOVE them! lol I did trade some to the used book store but it was traumatic for me! I had seperation anxiety!

Hi Beth,

I hate to give away books too!

My post is up now at www.mytwoblessings.blogspot.com

Have a good evening.

I think it's great that you donate your books to AAUW. I can't seem to bring myself to give any of my books away. I feel like they're so hard to come by and I'd rather trade or sell them than just simply give them away.
