Feature & Follow Friday 02/22/2013

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Question of the Week:

We always talk about books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head.
What books have you given other people lately? 
Answer:

I am a supporter of my local library. I donate boxes and boxes and boxes
of books over the course of a year. In fact, I just donated some books that 
are going to be used in a warehouse book sale this month! Hopefully, someone
will enjoy them as much as I did!

Love to see your answers.
Please leave me your link and I shall return your visit asap!

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!

  5. I think it's wonderful you donate books to your library. I wish mine wasn't so selective on what they accept.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, libraries do have a tendency of being selective. I always look for library book sales before I donate.

    I actually thought once or twice myself about donating books to my local library but never did it. I might in the future though.

    1. Megan, go right up to the front desk and say "HEY, I have a box of books I would love to donate to your book sale!" I'm totally sure they would accept them. If not, do a giveaway! Thank you so much for your kind thoughts about my blog!

  15. I have a whole bookshelf I would like to pass on to someone. I should definitely go to the library!

    1. Stop by the reference desk and ask them first if they take donations. If not, try a local hospice or even a school. Thanks for stopping by Mei!

  16. Donating is so nice. I never thought of doing that. I usually have a neighborhood group come and pick up my books/clothes/etc.. They give it to families currently in the shelter.

    Love your blog! I'm your newest follower :-)
