Feature and Follow Friday


If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Question of the Week: When you've read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)


If it is a library book then obviously I return it, ditto borrowed books from friends and family. As I'm a Librarian I've spent most of my life doing this. However, over the last few years, circumstances have changed and I've been at home and we're also embarking on a major house renovation. I've told our architect about my (dream) wall of books, and he's happily obliged. So, even though it's still yet to be built - hopefully sometime next year - I've been slowly building up my own library of books. So all my recent purchases have been for me to keep.

Ah, I'm dying of jealousy. We're still renting, but once we buy, I'm getting a library! Thank goodness I have enough room for e-books since I'm mainly 99% an e-reader LOL.

That'll be awesome to have your wall of books! My dad had a wall of books..in my room :D haha Unfortunately they weren't books I was interested in reading! My library isn't quite that large, and it's dwindled even more over the years as I loan books and donate them :D

Thanks for stopping buy my blog!
