Hello! This LTB post is a bit late, but I still want to get it published! This week’s topic is unhauling books, so I’m going to be talking about when I do (and do not) get rid of my books. This post didn’t end up being that long, but I did have a little to say! So, let’s get into the post.
Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly bookish meme created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and has been hosted by me since April of this year! Each Friday, there is a discussion topic for bloggers to write about. This week’s topic is reviewing books, suggested by Amber @ Escape Life in the Pages!
Do you get rid of books often? Or do you hold on to every book you buy?
I don’t get rid of books that often. I usually hold onto books, and don’t like to get rid of them often. A lot of my books are from when I was a lot younger, and are ones that I loved in elementary and middle school. I also try to only get books that I’ve read before, loved, and want to reread, or books that I’m very confident I’ll like, so I don’t end up with a ton of books that I don’t like.
How do you decide which books to get rid of?
When I do get rid of books (which is definitely not often at all) it’s books that I know I’m not going to end up reading, or books that I didn’t like. When I get rid of books, I usually put them in my little free library, or give them to a friend, so I know that they’re going somewhere!
Are there any books you would never get rid of?
Definitely; there are lots of books that I would never get rid of!! I would never get rid of the books that were my favorites when I was younger, like Lois Lenski’s books, and the Penderwicks, and those are ones that I still like to reread now! I also will never get rid of the books I have that were my parents, because it’s cool to have books that were theirs when they were younger.
And I also wouldn’t get rid of books that are my favorites, even if they are a lot newer; my copies of The Henna Wars and Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating, for example, since they’re two of my favorite books!
