July 2016 Book Unhauling


Good Monday morning everyone. Its that time of the month where I show what books I am unhauling this month. Can  you believe that we are half way through the year? Where is the time going? I had so much success last year unhauling books that I thought I would continue this again for 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.

I know last year I probably brought in more then I was actually giving away so this year I am trying to be cautious with my book buying and I am giving myself a budget each time I go shopping in hopes that it will curb my spending.

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.

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

I am gradually going through the bookcases and the many boxes that I have stored in the basement and doing a purge because this summer with fingers crossed we will get the basement finally renovated and I can purchase new bookcases and set up a library down there. So over the next few months I am expecting larger unhaulings.

Take a look at what I unhauled this month:
(Unless otherwise noted these are books I have read and I am passing them along to another book loving home.)

  1. Little Black Dress (Bookshots) by James Patterson
  2. Cross Kill (Bookshots) by James Patterson
  3. The Trial (Bookshots) by James Patterson
  4. Zoo 2 (bookshots) by James Patterson
  5. Learning to Ride (Bookshots) by Erin Knightley
  6. The McCullagn inn in Maine (bookshots) by Jen McLaughlin
  7. All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda
  8. Baby Doll by Holly Overton
  9. Everybody Rise by Stephanie Clifford
  10. One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid

So for July  I am releasing 10 books this month. I actually thought I had read less then I did so that feels good.

  • Total for 2016 is 77
  • Total for 2015 is 211
