What do you do with a book once you’ve read it?
I absolutely love the feel of a physical book, I find if I read too many ebooks in a row, I start to miss the physical action of turning pages. But this presents me with a problem, where do I keep all my books? I only have one bookcase and no room to put another, book stacks all over the place…sadly, some of my books need to find a new home.
While browsing Bookstagram, I discovered a great site – Read it Swap it – it’s as simple as it sounds, you browse the library, select a book, the person is then shown your library of books and can choose one (accept the swap), you then send the books to each other or reject the swap. Since joining over a week ago, I have swapped eight books!
Two of which have been on my TBR for ages and are both highly anticipated reads.
As well as receiving books that are already on the TBR, I have discovered two books that sound amazing and I can’t wait to read them…
The remaining four books I have received through swaps are:
I did request a copy of The Secret History by Donna Tartt but I was refused that swap, so if anyone has a copy going spare, let me know….
How many books do you own? I’m not using Read it Swap it as a one in, one out system, I can’t resist a charity shop haul and I’m a serial online book buyer, but I find it’s a good way to get rid of books I won’t read again. What do you do with your books once you’ve read them?
*I have linked all books to Goodreads due to the number of books mentioned, but if you’d prefer I put the blurb of each book in the actual post in future, do let me know in the comments.*
