Discussion: What do you do with your books you have read?

The other day my friend and I were talking and she was unhappy with how many books she had in her house and on her kindle. So I said why don’t you delete the books you dont want/like from your kindle and give the physical books away/sell them?

Firstly she gasped and then asked if I was a heathen!!!!

So it got me wondering……what do other people do?

For me, I cant see the point in hanging on to a book that I didnt like/love. I think it boils down to space for physical books…..more to dust! Also I’m a little OCD with my Kindle and am worried about space on there so I get rid of the books I don’t like/love.

Don’t get me wrong, I give my loved books a cuddle often and wouldn’t part from them….but due to her reaction I wondered if I’m weird!

So tell me….what do you do?

    1. Me too! Sometimes I see if my friends want to do a swap but most of them dont like what I read, they are firmly in the romance genre and the physical books I have are normally YA fantasy….


  1. I keep all the books I have bought and received, whether I liked them or not. My family has many bookworms, so the books that I didnโ€™t really like may end up being someone elseโ€™s all-time-faves.

      1. Itโ€™s because of my folks that I ended up being this book dragon in the first place! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also my bf and I have similar tastes in books, which is why our night tables have at least three to four books ๐Ÿ“š (each!)

  2. Well it’s difficult for me as I read in English in a non English speaking country! But ideally I would give the ones I don’t want to reread at libraries. I wonder if the Red Cross would not be interested though as they welcome refugees who maybe read in English?

  3. I am constantly giving away my books. I usually donate them to a school library that I know of that doesnโ€™t have very many books or a librarian. I tend to only keep the ones that I really liked and think I will reread at some point.

  4. I only download the books that I’m reading and then when I feel like I need space, I go through my kindle and return books to the cloud because I can always download them again later. As for physical copies, I’m very picky about what I put on my shelf because I don’t have a lot of space but every once in awhile I’ll go through it and donate a few books to Goodwill!๐Ÿ˜‰
