Lovin' los libros

A book blog dedicated to young adult and new adult novels

Feature and Follow Friday #22

By 1:00 AM


The Feature & Follow is a weekly event that allows bloggers to get to know each other, and gain more followers! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Leave me a comment and let me know how you followed so I can follow you back! You can also follow me on Twitter- because I love tweeting about books!

Q: What do you do with your books after you are done reading them?



Well. Most of my books are electronic now, so I obviously keep those. I only just started accumulating real books again after losing all my others, but before I would finish a book and either keep them or I would take them to a used bookstore and trade them in for credit so I could get new ones! Now that I'm blogging, if I get physical ARC's, then I will either donate them to ARCycling or see if fellow bloggers want to read them or even take them to a library if it's not one I'm set on keeping.

What about you guys? What do you do with them?

  1. I've lost and re-bought so many books because I've moved a dozen times in the last 15 years. I actually can't stand having read books on my kindle. After I review, I immediately remove from device.

    1. I don't think I could remove my ebooks, but I definitely need to start archiving mine! Thanks for stopping by Lizzy!

  2. Yeah, I usually send my ARCs to the library too if they were ones I didn't want. Normally by the time I give it to the library the book is already out, so it all works!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Excellent idea Jessica! That way your library will have newer titles!

  3. I keep the absolute favourites and donate the rest. Not enough space for all the physical books.

  6. I really miss having a bookstore where I can trade my old books for new ones. We had one when I lived in AZ, but not local to me now.

    1. Aw! I don't have a close one to me anymore- not like I did before I moved. It's a bit of a drive now. But that's ok, since I don't really have many physical books anymore!

  7. I'm mostly the same. I donated a lot of my physical copies to the library when we moved, only keeping my absolute faves. The best think about ebooks is the fact they don't take up any room so I can keep them forever ;) Happy Friday! Old follower.

    1. Yes! I love that about ebooks! After I lost all my physical books I swore I'd never buy a real book again! It didn't work out so well. LOL.

  8. Hopping through. I have so many ARCs from BEA. I really need to start giving them away.

    1. Oooh! I plan on going next year and will probably do giveaways after I read them also!

  9. I don't buy many physical books anymore since e-books are so much easier and I read a lot of Indie books that aren't out in print yet. You know I love organization :-) I keep mine on my carousel until I review them and then move then remove them so only my unread books are on the home screen (I am afraid to count how many are on there right now!)

    1. Exactly! Same here! But you know that already. :D I like your carousal idea! I definitely need to rearchive books on my Nook.

  11. Thanks for stopping by my FF :)

    I've donated a few books myself to libraries or taken them to used book stores. They're typically the books I was rather "eh" about and know I'm never going to read again. Gotta make room for the new favorites! :)

    1. Exactly! Smart plan Andrea! I don't want to keep books I'm not really going to read again- they take up too much room!

    1. Haha! Very nice Nina! I used to be a hoarder, but after I lost all my books sadly, I'm trying not fall back into that trap.

  13. I do a lot of eBooks now too - they just take up less space! But I still love my hard copies and I hoard them really badly. I just hate to let them go!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new bloglovin' and twitter follower.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Yes! Love ebooks! So much easier! I can understand holding on to books because I used to hoard mine too!

  14. I love spreading the love - my ARCs are passed through the hands of my school friends and occasionally, my bloggy friends! But most of the books I have recently received are ebooks.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Jess!

  15. That's the best part about ebooks, they don't take up heaps of room on bookshelves! Although I wish there was an easy way to keep all my kindle books organised other than alphabetical. I'd like to be able to keep series together somehow, mmm I'll have to google that and see if there is a way :D

  17. Hello! New follower. I look forward to your future posts! bookcovereviews.blogspot.com

    eBooks: I archive. I only delete if they are free or if I really disliked them
    Physical: Overflow on my bookshelf, which is unfortunately in my closet. I dream of the day when I can have my own library in my house. Until then, I save my books so that I can create said library ;-)

    On some occasions I will give books to the library or local schools.

  18. Hi! Thanks for stopping by ratherbarefoot.blogspot.com
    Nice answer I've never thought about donating them to the library. If I feel I need to get rid of any books I usually take them to a used bookstore.

    1. Thanks for stopping by also Cecilia! Used bookstores are a great idea too! I used to bring a lot of books to mine and trade them in.

Leave me some comment love! And I will get around to commenting back!

My blog is an award-free blog, however, as I just do not have the time to follow-up.
