What do you do with your books after you’re done reading them?
Books are like pets to me. Sometimes they’re well behaved and I really enjoy them. Other times they shit on my carpet and tear up my furniture. But, I still think that each one deserves a loving home.
If I like the book, then it goes on my bookshelf. I lend out many of the books I love to my BFF. I wish she’d get better about returning them. Since she says she reads my blog: Where are my signed copies of Suzanne Young’s A Need So Beautiful and A Want So Wicked? Hmm?
If I don’t like the book, then it goes to the library. I figured someone will like it. The library either puts it in their general collection or sells it for $1 to patrons.
It does get a little more complicated if the book is signed and I didn’t enjoy reading it. If it is signed and personalized to me, then I’ll keep the book forever. There’s something special about an author signing my name on a book they spent years putting together and I’ll cherish that long after I forget what the story was about.
If the book is signed, but not personalized, then it really depends. I’ll either do a giveaway or donate it to the library. It makes me feel so good to know that the books stand a good chance of finding someone that will love them.
