"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Follow Friday (14)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee at Parajunkee's View and Alison at Alison Can Read.  It is an awesome opportunity to network other book blogs.  
Welcome to Follow Friday! Let me tell you what is going on today.
  • First Parajunkee & Alison will be featuring one blogger from this great community each Friday along with having the Follow My Book Blog feature. 
  • Each week one blogger will be selected as a feature, so sign up for the Follow Feature. Future features are picked randomly.
This week's question is: When you’ve read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)

Oh this is a scary question.  Scary because I am such a horder it is ridiculous!!!  I have been told that this Christmas I am not allowed to get ANY books as presents (which makes me very depressed).  BUT, in my defense, I do give away many of my books.  I do so through Nearly New Books, which is a giveaway feature I do almost every other week here on Eli to the nth, and though donations to my local used bookstore.  Oh and donations to my library (SUPPORT LIBRARIES!!)  This obsession with owning the books I read is a reason why I have a shaky relationship with the returns date on my library books.  :clutches books to chest: I WILL NEVER GIVE YOU BACK!!!!!!!
What about you guys? Any other hoarders out there?


  1. haha I love to keep the books I loved. But I have no space so I try to pass on the books I don't want to re-read.

  2. New follower. Hopping around on the FF you'll find MANY more hoarders. I am not one of them, but I can sympathize with wanting to keep books. I just don't have the room.

  3. OMG that picture has so many books! I just want to hop on top of them like a pile of leaves and read there all day!

    Here is my Follow Friday post
