This week's question is: What do you do with your books after you’re done reading them?

MY ANSWER: I simply shelve them! 99% of the time I enjoy them and want to keep them. These days I rarely re-read books since I have too many of them to read, so they go on the shelf. It's fun because every book on the shelf means another book read!

  1. Yep, I think on the shelf will be a popular answer, either that or tucked away on the e-reader. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hopping through. I shelve books too. I don't re-read books much either but I like having the option.

  3. I had a similar answer. I hate parting with books once I have purchased them.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF.
    Have a great weekend :)

  5. I am a library user... so my shelves don't fill up like some other bloggers bookcases.

  6. I'm the same, and like you rarely do I get the chance to reread a book as much as I'd like to.

  7. Yes, I can't throw my books away~ I love them too much! And I too enjoy all of the books I've read, to a certain point ;)

  8. I think a lot of people put them on the shelves, but I have no shelf room :)

  9. I'm the same, I usually enjoy them and I tell my hubby that I will re-read them again one day, I can't get rid of them unless I didn't like it!!

  10. I usually shelve mine, too. Even if I didn't enjoy them at the time, I have picked up a few books to try to reread again later down the road.

  11. The only books I've managed to re-read lately are series books. I do have a couple that I plan on re-reading, but my review list is so long. :(

  12. I haven't been able to do any re-reads for a very long time. So now, I only keep the books that are my favorites.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier.

  13. Awesome, Jessica. I haven't had time to re-read either, so I keep those I truly adored, and the rest I give to a hospice.

  14. I've run out of space so I've had to donate lots of books just to be able to squeeze in some new ones.

  16. I agree Jessica! My physical books I usually put back on my bookshelf! I don't own a whole lot right now so if I get some I don't care to keep I may donate to the library.

    Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend! :)

  19. I wish that were true of me. Most of the books on my shelf--I'd say 2/3-3/4--I haven't read yet. But I really need to so I can point to a shelf and say, "I've read all those." :D have a great weekend!

  25. It is so hard to find time to re-read books (especially with my TBR pile reaching epic proportions!), but I still love to keep them. Like you said; every book on the shelf means another book read and it just makes me feel such a sense of accomplishment. Plus, you know, the covers are all so preeeeetty!

  29. I keep most of mine too but don't feel like I HAVE to, like when I was younger I was "collecting" books and kept everything. Now I give some away sometimes, but still keep the faves. :)

  30. Rereading has become hard with so many books on our piles! I love to collect books nonetheless. Great answer, Jessica!

    Thank you for stopping by my post earlier. Just returning the love! Happy reading!

  32. I wish I had a library of all the books I've read. I keep every ebook, and I do keep books I think my kids will eventually want to read :) Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by my FF.

  34. Thanks for stopping by! I wish I could say I shelved my books but I get most of them from the library, and my shelf is so full of books that now they just sit in piles around it!

  35. I love saving all the books I've read, That's why I stopped going to the library; I never wanted to give their books back:)

  37. I love re-reading my books even though I have so many. For me, re-reading a beloved favorite is just as fun as reading a new book. Jane Eyre's cover is considering crumbling to dust.
