Follow Friday

feature follow friday meme
I'm still a little homesick for the Friday Feet.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. The featured blogs are Once Upon a Coffin and ParaDays. Go follow them all because they look super awesome!

The question of the week is:
What do you do with books after you are done reading them?
 
If I loved it, I will cuddle it on my bed in a dripping heap of tears and chocolate, sobbing quietly to myself for several days before I find it a place of honor on my glorious bookshelves. If I hated it, I throw it into the Box of Shame to be traded in to the used bookstore. If I hated it, but its cover wasn't completely hideous or it was just grossly huge--*cough* *cough* Inheritance Cycle *ahem*--I use them as doorstops.

My family also uses books we don't like to keep the couch from sliding over the living room heating vent.

It's serving an important function.

  1. Haha! That's definitely an interesting way to get good use out of books you didn't enjoy! I usually just donate mine to the library! The loved books though get a place on my shelves of course!

  7. Oh my gosh, this is funny. I especially like the books keeping the couch from sliding over the heating vent. Talk about an imaginative and totally practical use of books. ;-)

  11. Niceeee! That would drive my family nuts, though. Haha

    See everyone? Books can do anything, and that's why everyone should have a few. Or a lot. You can even build towers with books. So... you should probably go with a lot.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower via GFC.

  12. Hello. I cyber-stumbled here via the blog hop. Great site! look forward to your posts. My books have been mostly eBooks lately because I've ran out of shelf room! But I like to donate to the library and schools.
