After you have finished reading a book….
How do you decide if you are going to keep it or pass it on?
If it is an ARC, does that influence your decision?
Who do you pass it on to? or where do you pass it on?
I only keep a select few books. Almost all the books on my shelf are to-be-read books. I do have one shelf for my granddaughters – for when they come and for when they get older.
Most of my books are passed on to friends that I think will enjoy them.
My daughter Kristin of Kritters Ramblings and I go to Baltimore to The Book Thing as often as we can. I like to take my books there because they give them all away. I enjoy the feeling of knowing someone who might have the opportunity to read a book just because we took them there.
This is a good place to take my ARC because they do not sell books – they just pass them on.
For exchange, we go to 2nd and Charles. The store is large, clean, and easy to find what you are looking for. They are selective on what they will buy from you.
