#BookBloggerHop: Do you have an excessive number of books?

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blogs.

The original question for this week was: “Have you ever been told you have an excessive number of books and what was your reaction?” Since I haven’t ever been told that I changed it to “Do you have an excessive number of books?”

Answer: Any book blogger will tell you they have a lot of books. We are sent books in every format and we have more books than most people. Are they excessive? I have several bookshelves full of print copies, including signed copies that I collect, plus so many ebooks on my Kindle app I couldn’t even tell you. The only ones I feel are excessive are the ones I don’t think I’ll read ever again and are not collector’s books. Eventually, I will give those away or remove them from my Kindle app.

How about you? Do you have an excessive number of books?

  1. I have been told this many times, especially by my husband every time we move! I had to get rid of 75% of my books when we made the move to Spain. Now if I obtain a book, I have to get rid of one. That does not apply to ebooks of course. (I gave some of my favourite books to my daughter in Canada, so I get to visit them when I spend time at her place) I no longer have an excessive number of books. (on my shelves)

  2. Mom’s always telling me I have too many books. We argue about it regularly – though it’s evolved into a half-hearted argument by now, as we both know neither is going to change our minds on our positions. 😏. Occasionally she feels bad for me after I do a major purge because she knows how much my books mean to me – and then she sees how many books I still have left! 😂. …Since I’ve moved, I’m trying to be at least neater about the process, and keep the books off the floor! Which means limiting (sorta) the # of new ones I bring in, and making a concerted attempt to read and get rid of the ones that aren’t keepers so there’s room for the new ones.
