Booking Through Thursday: Book Gardening

Here is this week’s Booking Through Thursday:

When’s the last time you weeded out your library? Do you regularly keep it pared down to your reading essentials? Or does it blossom into something out of control the minute you turn your back, like a garden after a Spring rain?

Or do you simply not get rid of books? At all?

And–when you DO weed out books from your collection (assuming that you do) …what do you do with them? Throw them away (gasp)? Donate them to a charity or used bookstore?  SELL them to a used bookstore? Trade them on Paperback Book Swap or some other exchange program?

To my best recollection, the last time I weeded out my library was perhaps in January or February, maybe before then. The library used to blossom out of control, though I haven’t really made too many contributions to it in the past few years. Just a handful of books. So it’s remained stable.

When I do get rid of books I like to try to trade them at the nearest Half Price, or put them on BookMooch, which I haven’t done lately. I should put more books up on BookMooch but the shipping is expensive.
