Book Blogger Hop – May 19 – 25, 2017

About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:

What do you do with books you no longer want? Do you donate them? Do you take them to a half-price bookstore? Does a friend or family member benefit? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I keep most of the books that I have read or might want to read or that I have bought and will read soon. If there is a book that I absolutely won’t want to read or that I really didn’t like, then I usually donate it to my hometown library for their used book sale.

I don’t understand the question. Who has books they don’t want?


What about you? Do you have books you don’t want? What do you do with them?



  1. I like to give certain books to the library and then I donate a lot to the local hospital’s library. I think they let the patients keep the books.

    Most of us have been indicating that we donate books. That is wonderful.

    Have a good weekend.

    Happy Hopping!!

  2. It looks like most of this week’s participants donate their unwanted books, either to a local library, a charity, or a used bookstore (or all three). I usually donate my unwanted books to my local Goodwill store.

    You could also try holding your own blog giveaways to get rid of such books. I’ve done this myself.

    I LOVE Melissa’s answer! TOO funny!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!! Hope you’re both having a WONDERFUL Sunday!! <3 🙂

  3. Yup I do the same thing and donate books that I don’t want as well, but I mostly sell/trade them too half-price book stores too. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog hop.
