December Book Unhauling #12

BookUnhauling

Good Thursday morning everyone and Happy New Year. Its that time of the month where I show what books I am unhauling this month. Its hard to believe that this is literally the last post of 2015. I do plan on continuing this in 2016.

I decided way back in  January (2015) 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 so it seems like what I am unhauling I am bringing new stuff in.

I have thought about it and starting in January I plan on  documenting  a monthly book haul purchase at the end of the month to show case the books I bought in that month so that could mean that my mailbox post will be emtpy at times.

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 month I didn’t unhaul much in books as you can see but at least they are being sent to another loving home that will read them and hopefully pass them on.

  1. The Winter Wedding by Abby Clements
  2. Meet Me Under The Mistletoe by Abby Clements
  3. The Mystics of Mile End by Sigal Samuel
  4. Thea Stilton and the Missing Myth
  5. A Amish Second Christmas by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller & Tricia Goyer
  6. The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black
  7. Starry Night by Debbie Macomber
  8. A Plain & Simple Christmas by Amy Clipston

 

So I am releasing  8 books that I hope will make it to a loving readers hands and that will bring my total to 211 books that I have purged since January 2015. I am quite pleased with that total and I know there is a bunch of books that got donated before I was able to document them but that is okay.

I am looking forward to continuing this in 2016.

November Book Unhauling #11

BookUnhauling

Good Sunday morning everyone. Its that time of the month where I show what books I am unhauling this month. Its hard to believe we are entering the month of December and that this is almost the end of 2015, where is the time going?

I decided way back in  January (2015) 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 so it seems like what I am unhauling I am bringing new stuff in.

Although I think next year (January 2016) I need to document a monthly 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  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? I have decided that I am going to be doing a monthly book haul purchase instead of show casing the books weekly.

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 month I didn’t unhaul much in books as you can see but at least they are being sent to another loving home that will read them and hopefully pass them on.

  1. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
  2. Silence of the Wolf by Terry Spears (this is a duplicate copy)
  3. The Dirt Diary by Anna Staniszewski (this is a duplicate copy)
  4. Christmas with Krabby Klaws
  5. Good Sam by Dete Meserve
  6. Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick
  7. Myles & The Monster Outside by Philippa Dowding
  8. The Travel of PJ Mouse in Queensland
  9. The Travel of PJ Mouse in Canada
  10. I Didn’t Do My Homework Because…
  11. Over The River & Through The Wood
  12. Here comes Destructosaurus
  13. At The Same Moment in the World
  14. Busy Bunny Days in the Town, On the Farm and At The Port

  16. Follow That Map
  17. Dashing Through The Snow

I am sure in my next unhauling post I will have a lot more since it will be December and I am hoping to make some head way in our basement so that we can finish the renovations and get some bookshelves put up so that I can finally get the books out of boxes which will clear up a whole lotta space down there.

October Book Unhauling #10

BookUnhauling

Good Friday morning everyone. Its that time of the month where I show what books I am unhauling this month. Its hard to believe we are entering the month of November, where is the time going?

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 a monthly 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  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? I have decided that I am going to be doing a monthly book haul purchase instead of show casing the books weekly.

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 month I have decided to be ruthless and I purged quite a bit of books as you will see in the following pictures:

So I am releasing 62 books that I hope will make it to a loving readers hands and that will bring my total to 183 books that I have purged since January 2015.

I have read a few of the books and I have to be realistic because I know I will never re-read them again. As you can see I was a fan of Oprah’s book club, were you?

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?

August Book Unhauling #8

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

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?

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 month I have nothing to give away/donate because things in real life happen and I honestly haven’t felt the urge to pick up a book in read and in all honesty I have tried and it seems like I am reading the same page over and over again and nothing is registering.

Total of books given away so far is 113.

Sadly this month I have nothing to give away/donate because I have been reading very slowly this month. I am in a kind of reading slump. I am hoping with being on vacation that I will be able to devour some really good reads.

Total of books given away so far is 113.
