  1. Nice post. I keep all the books I read. I have acquired quite a library.

      That’s so cool! I hope one day I have enough space in my house to do that too.

      1. Oh, it isn’t easy. Space becomes a proble. So, I have given away a few to libraries and schools. But I keep all my favorites.

  2. I donate to libraries sometimes, but there is a table at the university where my husband works, where people can put books or other items they wish to give away. Items are grabbed up promptly.

      Hi, thanks for commenting 🙂 That’s quite an interesting concept. I wish they’d had something similar here.

    Once upon a time, we four (3 are avid readers) collected books. Then we had to move, and soon our books were scattered in three houses. My brother moved to Taiwan, so he brought a bunch of them with him. And then I had to move to Boracay (a tiny island so beautiful that your eyes will pop out of its sockets when you see it, try searching Boracay using Google). So I brought with me a bunch.

    And then I donated all books I had in a dive shop I co owned, we made a book exchange there. When I returned to the city after five years, I left all those books there.

    And then the flood… a terrible flood destroyed all books in my sister's house. I still had some books, which I had donated to a charitable organization.

    Nowadays, I have digital books. A few paperbacks, mostly gifts – all of them leadership books such as this one:
