  1. I keep some books others I pass on. I like to share books that are good and might encourage someone else. I like to keep some if I really like it and think I'll reread it. Now I have a kindle and can't share as much however will occasionally purchase one for a friend if I know they'll like it.

  2. I've been passing more and more on because I just have too many to read to be able to read them twice. I do keep ones that are in series that I love like Harry Potter.

  4. I pass my books on to the women in my life (mother in law, sister in law & grandmother) most of the time. I only keep it if I think my kids might read it later.

  8. I very rarely keep books after I have read them unless a gift from family or special like the complete books of Wizard of Oz which I love and plan on sharing with my granddaughter when she gets older, so she is not so scared of it. I like to donate books to friends, nursing homes and the like. i.teel (at)sbcglobal(dot) net

  9. I keep books for quite awhile. I will pass them along or donate somewhere if I decide that the book is not one I will want to reference or reread again in the future. Thanks for the chance to win!

  12. I do tend to pass books on once I read them. I only keep those books I might read again or pass on to my daughter.

  13. Some are keepers and some aren't. Some of them just become dear friends that I have to visit over and over and some I am able to pass on. I used to keep books that were parts of series but as I age and my shelves have overflowed that has stopped. Now I am not exactly sure what makes a book a keep other than something in me says that I want to read it again.

  14. I do keep books after reading them at least twice. Sometimes I pass them on to someone who would take care of them and read them too. A keeper is one that you can identify with or has lessons that you can use for later.

  17. I have kept every book I've read, and then I was surrounded by 20 boxes. So I can only keep them when I absolutely adore them....or by a favorite author... or a series I like...

    Usually, I either sell/trade or give away books after I have read them.

    What makes a book a "keeper" for you?
    I like to keep/collect autographed books.

  24. I usually pass my books on when I am done reading them. For me to keep a book it has to be in my heart, not just speak to my heart.
