Let’s Talk Bookish – Unhauling Books

Welcome to my Let’s Talk Bookish post! Created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and hosted by Aria @ Book Nook Bits, this meme includes a set prompt which we are then let lose on to discuss.

This week’s prompt is:

Unhauling Books (Amber @ Escape Life in the Pages)

How do you feel about unhauling books?

I hate it. I always think ‘what if I want to read it again?’.

Do you get rid of books often? Or do you hold on to every book you buy?

No I don’t get rid of books often. I have never given any of my books away. I keep every single book, which is why I try to limit what I buy/ask for as presents. I have got a Kindle so that I don’t completely fill my shelves, but they are still gradually filling up! I haven’t got rid of any Kindle books yet either…

How do you decide which books to get rid of?

I couldn’t and so I don’t!

Are there any books you would never get rid of?

ALL OF THEM! I have only just got back in to reading so my shelves aren’t as bad as they could have been. I know that I have some of my childhood books at my mum’s house which I have started to move across to my house. Whilst I still have space I won’t even contemplate getting rid of any books!

What about you?

    As I have gotten older and am trying to declutter, I have gotten rid of a lot of books. I gave away, or donated books I had already read, and even books I hadn’t read, but know I won’t read now. Wait until you get older, Emily Jane.

      I was just hoping to move to a bigger house in the future 😂🤣 I know what you mean though. My parents have gone through the loft. My step dad is a terror for train books though. The problem with those is that they keep gaining in value (apparently 🤣😂)

      I don’t let my family members near my books and they know not to ask. I have seen the way they hold their books! I have a wall of bookshelves and we are having to find more space. To be fair a couple of shelves have ornaments on and it is a cumulation of my books and my partners.
