This is a weekly meme hosted by parajunkee and alisoncanread!
This week's question:
"When you've read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate, swap it...?)

I pretty much hold on to my books. I like looking at them on my shelf :) what book lover doesn't? However, I do love loaning out my books. They are meant to be read! But, I ask nicely that they would be well taken care of, and if I lend out a hardback, I obviously give it to them without the jacket! Books I don't care too much for? I trade them into the used bookstore to buy one I may like better.

What about you? What do you do with your books? Leave a comment so I can check out your answer and your blog! I'm always looking for new blogs to follow!

I've made too many mistakes of loaning books out to irresponsible friends. My best friend doesn't give my stuff back for years at a time (she had my Thumbelina movie for 8 years) and another one of my friends gave my hardcover back and it looked like it had been used as a shield in a sword fight, because there's a huge slice right down the center (jacket and front).

Btw, I'm a new follower. :)

I agree I love looking at all my books on my shelves, but if I trust the person completely then I'll loan them the book.

Great answer! I do loan a lot of my books out but usually want them back. I give away a few that I don't want to re-read.

I take books I don't enjoy to my local used bookstore too. Then I can buy something better with the trade-in bucks!
