The other day I ran into a blogger who was really interesting. She reads and loves books, but when she's done, she usually gives them away.
I also have a very close friend who doesn't care about books at all, but somehow she manages to accumulate them. Some she gives to me, many go to charity and others are simply thrown away. Eek!
Most of the readers I know save their books, have even larger TBR piles, or keep adding more to their already overflowing shelves.
My books are set up by author on some bookcases, and by genre on others. I'm getting better, because at one time, they literally took over the house. In some instances, it was even hard to get my friends back to the library!
I've also been known to save magazines, but have managed to whittle that down to keeping just those from 2013 up to now. (lol)
What about you? When books seem to overflow, or you're tired of certain novels, do you simply get rid of them?
JUST ONE MORE THING
Today is my anniversary of 7 years, but did I neglect to mention that it's my birthday tomorrow? (lol)
Like me, Martha Stewart was born in August, and to say that I admire her would be an understatement. Many people don't know that she actually started her career as a stockbroker until starting her own catering business in the 1970s.
When I see her brand in stores, pick up a cookbook, see her on television or peruse her magazine, it never ceases to amaze me that she has accomplished so many things. I mean, it seems like she can do everything! If you get a chance, peek at her magazine for some really great tips on food, decorating, making jam, etc.
