Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is supposed to be about books that I refuse to lend to people or books that are so special I won’t let anyone touch them. But that topic didn’t really interest me. First because I only have a few ”special” books, editions that are from OwlCrate or signed by the author. And second because I don’t really lend people books anyway. I don’t trust anyone with any of my books, I’ve had books that have never been returned or returned damaged. Etc etc. If someone wants a book they can use the library. My collection is all special. 😀
But anyway, on to what I’m actually going to talk about. Come August my partner Grant and I are moving to a better and bigger apartment (thank all the gods! lol) and to prepare for that I’ve been going through all that we own. And yes, this includes my library.
In total I have five bookshelves, and I’m not even going to try and count how many books I have. As much as I would love to do that, it would just take too much time. 😀
Cookbooks, comics, series and standalones and so many books. I’m quite proud of the library I’ve started, but it is also time to look through it all and see which books I’ve actually enjoyed and which books should probably be donated to someone else. Speaking of giving books away though, I will be doing a giveaway closer to August. I have a couple OwlCrate books that I haven’t really enjoyed, but maybe you would?
At the beginning of the year I was thinking of trying to read/reread all the books in my library before I moved. But of course that didn’t happen. So my question for you all is, how do you go through your books? How do you decide which books you’ll probably never read? It’s so hard to think about my books rationally. 😀
I would love some tips or helpful hints! Don’t forget to leave a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post!
