My question to all readers is -
If you are a book reviewer (or even those who are "book addicts"), what do you do with all of your books you accumulate once you've read them? As reviewers we're asked nicely not to resell them, and instead we're told to donate them or give them away, but do you have a hard time letting go of the books, but are having an even harder time trying to figure out where to keep them? What if they're signed, does this make a difference?
Since I officially began reviewing back in the early part of this year, I have accumulated quite a bit of books, and do have a hard time figuring out where to fit them amongst the pile of books I already own. I've had to stop myself completely (which is a hard thing to do) from purchasing any books on my own since I'm running out of room. I don't want to get rid of them just yet, especially the signed copies. I was thinking about doing giveaways, but it could get quite expensive with shipping them everywhere. And just tossing them to a donation place seems to me as a sad end to that person's book I feel attached to since I reviewed it, when it's lumped in a pile of thousands of other donations. Maybe as the years go by and the books continue to pile up I'll be thinking differently, but as for now I may end up needing an entire home just to store my books, since I can't part with them.
