CBarton said...

I am a hoarder. Lucky for me, so is my husband when it comes to books.

NoraA said...

I only get rid of my doubles (I donate them to a library that puts them into circulation). I'm NOT a hoarder, I'm a collector, with books going back to the 1960's and earlier. Many of them are either first editions or first printings. Lots of them are autographed or personalized. I have close to 3000 books in two rooms and a storage bin.

BRANDY GIBSON said...

I will clean out ones that I did not really like but the rest are hoarded and guarded well.

The Menagerie Mom said...

I can't even lie, I'm a book hoarder. I think getting rid of books would nearly kill me. Thank you for sharing this, Melissa and Mudpie!

Laura Thomas said...

I do both. I hoard all of my books when I first get them and read them. Then the day comes when I can't find a book and clean my shelves to organize them. That's where some I enjoyed but won't read again go into a box and are donated to a local shelter. It's hard to let them go, but I'm firm on, once in the box, it stays in the box. LOL

Sandra Rodriquez said...

Deborah

Tina Woo said...

I clean my bookshelves about twice a year - and take them to the volunteer stations at the medical center where I take my Dad for appointments. (I used to donate them to the bookstore at the library, but after being stuck at the hospital with my Dad a time or two, I know what a godsend a book can be when you are sitting in an uncomfortable place for HOURS...)

Linda Herold said...

I am definitely a book hoarder!!

Summer D said...

I'm normally a hoarder, but we moved recently and I decided I would finally have to go through my gigantic stacks of books. It was a bittersweet day.

Carolyn Daley said...

I donate most of my books to our local hospital. They have a section in the main lobby where visitors can buy used paper backs for 25 cents or hardback for 50 cents. This way there is a variety of reading material available to people and the hospital can make a small profit that adds up over the year to buy new machines.

slehan said...

I get most of my books from the library. If I do get books I don't want to reread I'll donate them.
Thanks for the contest.

susan1215 said...

I will clean out ones that I did not really like but the rest are hoarded and I reread them.

Lucy hearterfilia said...

I never in my life I'll get rid of a book out no matter what. They are very important to me. I accumulate them no matter if I have no space.

Sharon Braswell said...

I hoard them mostly, but I donate some to the library eventually...except of course for my very favorite series collections! Thank you for a wonderful Giveaway!!

Kaye Killgore said...

Honestly, I try to pass books on, take them to used bookstores, etc. but I'm a hoarder at heart.

Derrick Todd said...

We tend to keep them.

Michelle Willms said...

I am a horrible, horrible hoarder. I even have multiple copies books I've been known to re-read. "Collector authors" have hardbacks and paperback copies, sometimes even two paperbacks, one for collections purposes, and one for reading. Of course, books I know I'll never read again get donated. I don't keep books I'm not going to read (or cherish for collection purposes). If I didn't hate a book, though, I might try reading part of it again prior to donating, because I've been known to fall in love with a book the second time around. Most of the time, if the book is horrible (to me) on the first read, it's a goner(unless it was a gift, then it's cherished). My daughter gets first dibs, though, if it's appropriate (YA).

Dianne Casey said...

I mostly hoard. I do share them with my sister after I read and then she hoards.
