**Feature & Follow ~ #28**


Happy Friday and welcome to the Blog Hop! 

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by the talented ladies behind AlisonCanRead and Parajunkee's View. The intent of this blog hop is to get out there and meet other bloggers and gain new followers yourself. What sets this blog hop apart is the Feature. Each week, two blogs are featured, one at AlisonCanRead and one at Parajunkee's View. So make sure to hop over to those blogs to check out this week's Features.

This week's Features are:
Paradays
Once Upon a Coffin

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

My answer:
Well, it depends...if it's a book that's part of a series, or by an author I adore, and if the book was just outstanding and I think I'll read it again...it goes on my shelves. This way I can re-read it when the mood strikes AND I can share it with friends.

If, however, the book didn't trip my trigger, I donate it or take it to a local used bookstore.

Here is one wall in my library...so you can see that most books end up here in my own little slice of heaven. :)




What about y'all? What do you do with books once you're done reading them?

    1. *offers a tissue* Thanks, Lexxie! My shelves came from my local Borders store when it closed. They were liquidating the shelves so I got them at a great price! And...I LOVE them! :)

      Hope your Friday was grand!

    1. Thanks, Berls. :) It is nice having a library...and it took many years before I got one. I used to have stacks of books all over my bedroom floor and my husband STILL wouldn't get me shelves. LOL

  12. Oh sweet library Brandee! I have a similar one except the bottom two shelves have doors so that's where paperbacks went (stacked on top of and in front of each other). The shelves you could see where for hardbacks. Granted, they're all full now and we've moved on to other furniture and the e-reader LOL! Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks, Traci! My husband is trying to figure out where we could put another shelf. LOL And I believe we've had discussions about my e-library...don't know where I'd house those hundreds of books. Good thing they're in the cloud! :) Enjoy your weekend!

  13. Oh, I love your shelf! :) I bet your house is beautiful! I need to come visit! :) And did you know that Ella James lives in Denver now? And another author that just friended me on FB. We totally need to have a Colorado thing.

    1. Hiya, Nina! Thanks so much for hopping by. Yeah, I need to be a little more judicious when it comes to donating so I don't fill up my shelves too soon! ;) Thanks for following...on my way to your blog now.

  16. Before leaving this comment, I decided to look & see how many times the word "jealous" popped up in your comments feed. As expected, it was a lot of times. I, too, am jealous. One day...

    Here's my FF, if you're interested!:

    1. LOL! It took me many years before I got my shelves. ;) And if Borders hadn't gone belly up, I might not have them. My hubs bought my shelves from Borders when they were getting rid of everything. I love them!

      On my way to check out your blog.
