Follow Me Friday

Thursday, July 25, 2013
This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. Sounds like GFC is eventually going away..  so you may want to follow by email or bloglovin/feedly (I love both). And now for this week's question....


Follow on Bloglovin

Q. What do you do with your books after your done reading them?


A. Well this is easy for me... I return them to the library! I would say 99% of my books come from the library.  I love my library.  I read sooo many books and I just don't have the money to buy all of them. I go to my library on the same day every week and return what I am done with and pick up what's new.  I love it.. I get books, video games, and movies from there.  Now for this epic cat move!


Also.. I am doing the Reading Road Trip- and I have the state UTAH if you want to check it out! Click here!  If this tempts you more.. there is a giveaway!

    1. I am so thankful I live in a city with a big library system. I hear about people all the time whose library doesn't have very many books.

  2. New to the hop. I also get most of mine from the library. I love my library system.

    1. My library does always have the ebooks I want. That is more the publisher then the library though.

  4. Wow, I haven't borrowed books from the library in ages! But then most of the books I read, they don't have in my libraries anyways.

  5. LOL. That gif always make me smile. I just want to scoop that cat up. I used to get all my books from the library too, but I'm horrid at returning them on time now that I have kids. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. ♥

  7. I like borrowing books from the library too. However, those that I really like and know I want to peruse over and over, I tend to buy.

  8. Nice! My library doesn't usually have the books I want to read. I don't mind buying though, it's my only "bad vice"! And I have member discounts and free shipping and coupons, so I do save some! But yeah, I love my books and I tend to keep 99% of them! For the rare book I didn't like I put it in a donate pile that usually goes to the library!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  13. Yay for library love! Most of my books come from the library, too, although since I started blogging I have purchased more books that I used to.

    I love my library - but I always work there, so I might be a little biased. :)

  16. Omg, that gif...LOVE!! I stared at it for like a full minute. I wish I used my library more. I did probably ten years ago, but now I've become to lazy to return books.

    1. I am lucky.. my library put a drop box right down the street from me in a perfect location!! So now I am not so lazy about returning items.

  17. I really should use the library more, but I just don't want to give them back once I'm done!

    Love the kitty! Wow! That's some hang time :)

    Thanks for stopping by this week.

  18. Adorable cat! I used to go to the library all the time. Since my son won't convert to a Kindle, if he wants books we go there.

    1. I agree... sometimes I do have to wait a few months if a book is super popular. That is the only bad thing about the library.

  20. Love the epic cat move! I love borrowing books from the library and get most my books that way too. But I really like to own my favorites, and when I borrow a library book that I love I HATE returning it. I feel like I'm saying goodbye to a good friend. then I have to buy it and it goes on my wish list until I can find it on sale (because I'm extremely cheap/broke lol)

  26. That's so great that you can use your local library! Ours used to be so good, but they never have new titles in the genres I read and all the books they do have are so damaged with pages falling out etc. It sucks that they can't update the books because I think I'd live at the library if they did! My purse would probably appreciate it too :)
