December 2017 Book Unhauling

Good Monday morning everyone. Its been since July since I have done a unhauling post and sadly since that time I have passed on many books that I didn’t get to document. I need to get better with that because all numbers eventually add up to the bigger outlook.

I had so much success in 2015 unhauling books that I thought I would continue this again for 2017 and going into 2018 I will be doing the same thing again. I think I do this out of curiosity  for myself to see if I am giving more away then I am bringing in.

With the lack of documenting over the past 5 months I have no idea what I have given away so the totals are a little off.

So each month I have been posting about what books I unhauled and then another monthly post I have been sharing what books I physically bought in the month.

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

This is going to be probably a huge unhauling since its been like 5 months since I shared what I have unhauled. These books have been read and have been stacking up beside my desk.

Take a look at what I unhauled this month:

 

  1. Winter Solstice by Elin Hilderbrand
  2. Love Lies Beneath by Ellen Hopkins
  3. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
  4. The Locket by Richard Paul Evans
  5. Faceoff edited by David Baldacci
  6. Charm by Sarah Pinborough
  7. Beauty by Sarah Pinborough
  8. Slammed by Colleen Hoover
  9. Cloaked in Red by Vivian Vande Velde
  10. Woman’s Murder Club: The Medical Examiner by James Patterson/Maxine Paetro (bookshots)
  11. The Dolls by James Patterson/Kecia Bal (bookshots)
  12. Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson
  13. Chase The Rainbow
  14. Labyrinth Lost
  15. Tandem
  16. Darkness Becomes Her
  17. Touched
  18. Cage of Deceit
  19.  A Crucible of Souls
  20. A Breath of Frost
  21. Omega
  22. Spinning Out

July 2017 Books Unhauling

Good morning everyone. For the past two years I have been sharing with you the books that I have unhauled from my collection. I started doing this in 2015 and at that time I  released 211 books and then last year due to life happening I missed months sharing what I unhauled and it went undocumented so the only number I have is 124 from the months I did share.

I am going to make 2017 a better year in sharing what books I am unhauling. As a book blogger and a book reader I don’t tend to keep the books once I read them unless there is a special meaning for them, so I always pass them along to friends/family and if they don’t want I bring to good will.

I am slowly beginning the task of purging the massive book collection I have in boxes in my basement this summer and this is just the beginning of what will probably be a massive unhauling post. It needs to be done and what better time then now to do it right?

So lets get right into July and take a look at what I unhauled this month:

  1. The House Husband by James Patterson with Duane Swierczynski
  2. French Twist by James Patterson with Richard DiLallo
  3. The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell
  4. The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
  5. Disclaimer by Renee Knight

This month since I am officially back to blogging on a normal bases I have dug out partial reviews of the books I read and started to complete them and dug out that bag of books to reference back so now there is no need to keep the books so I am passing them along to another good home.

As you can probably see the last time I did an unhauling post was in February.

Since it was a rainy long Victoria Day weekend in Canada I decided that I was going to go through some boxes and I have a massive unhauling post. It feels good to finally go through my books and pass what I am no longer wanting to read or that I have read and was holding onto them. Sadly this made only a little dent in my pile but still a little bit at a time. More unhauling posts to come.

February 2017 Book Unhauling

Good Monday morning everyone. For the past two years I have been sharing with you the books that I have unhauled from my collection. I started doing this in 2015 and at that time I  released 211 books and then last year due to life happening I missed months sharing what I unhauled and it went undocumented so the only number I have is 124 from the months I did share.

I am going to make 2017 a better year in sharing what books I am unhauling. As a book blogger and a book reader I don’t tend to keep the books once I read them unless there is a special meaning for them so I always pass them along to friends and family.

So each month I will be posting about what books I am unhauling and then another monthly post will be what books I physically bought in the month.

I told myself  New Year’s Eve that I really needed to do a major clean up and major purge of the items in the house that aren’t being used and that is taking up space. One of the items is books and if you could see my bookcases and tons of boxes in the basement you would see that, that is one of the issues and one of the things taking up most of the space so I am making it my mission in 2017 to get that all cleaned up and purge what I have read and know I won’t reread as well as purging the books that I no longer have a desire to read.

So lets get right into February and take a look at what I unhauled this month:

  1. Late Edition by Fern Michaels
  2. The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
