Keep, Toss or Share?
By the way, I'm almost finished Killing Fear and I just now noticed the little red star on the front of the book that says you can get a book free. Yay for free books!
I probably missed the words because I ordered the book online and the second I got it in my hot little hands I put it up by my computer. As a reward after writing, I'd allow myself to read a chapter :) Anyway, at the back of Killing Fear is a form you can fill in and send away for a free copy of The Prey. I think this is pure genius! Of course, I've already read The Prey but, hey, a free book is a free book and I'll gladly gift it or just keep it because it's always good to have a second copy of a book you like, right?
Can you tell I have a problem with getting rid of books? It's true. I have difficulty parting company with books. I have a LOT of books. Some of my friends joke about borrowing from my library. Truthfully, there are some books I probably could take off my shelves (ones that aren't my favorites). These are books that I've read but don't love enough to read again. Still, I just can't seem to bring myself to remove them.
That leads me to this question: What do you do with your books? Do you trade them in at used book stores? Do you pass them along to libraries, charities and/or lucky friends?
