September Book Unhauling #9

BookUnhauling

Good Morning and welcome to the September Book Unhauling post. Its hard to believe we are already in at the end of September and beginning October very soon.

I decided in January that I wanted to document how many books I was giving away each month to see if I was making any kind of dent in my book collection. As of right now it seems like I am buying more then I am unhauling but at least its making me aware that I am reading and passing my books along which is a good thing. Right?

Although I think next year (January 2016) I need to document monthly my book haul purchases, that might be the thing that could scare me and stop myself from buying so many books each month because realistically I add them to my well mailbox post and I never give it a second glace and don’t really see it but  perhaps at a months glace it could be an eye opener. Something to think about right? Would you like to see a monthly post of the whole stash of books I buy or in the mailbox post good enough? Perhaps both?

Are you a constant book buyer? Can you resist buying books on a weekly bases? Please tell me I am not alone in this?

Sadly this is another month I don’t have alot to give away/donate because I am still dealing with things in real life. I am reading some so that is good and I guess even if I give away a handful of books each month that is a good thing.

This month I have passed along the following books:

  • George by Alex Gino
  • Violent Ends
  • Murder She Wrote Aloha Betrayed by Jessica Fletcher & Donald Bain
  • Copper Beach by Jayne Ann Krentz
  • The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly
  • That Summer Place by Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs and Jill Barnett
  • One Night Only by Sue Welfare
  • Gifted & Talented by Wendy Holden

So today I am releasing 8 books and this brings my total of books given away so far is 121.

Do you have a hard time passing your books along?

  1. It is hard to read after you lose someone like that – I’m sure you’ve got a lot to deal with.

    You could do a monthly post that documents the books that came in and the books that went out both so you know if you’ve come out on the plus or minus side each month.

    I have no problem getting rid of books after I’ve read them but have to do better about getting rid of books I’ll probably never read.

Speak Your Mind
