The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer at Crazy For Books in March 2010 and ended in December 2012. Billy at Rambling of a Coffee Addicted Writer didn’t want it to end and took over in February 2013, lucky for us. The hop starts every Friday and ends on Thursdays the following week with weekly prompts. 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 your own blog.
For This Week:
“When you receive new books in the mail, do the older ones get moved to the bottom of your list or do go strictly “by the book” and keep your list with older books first and then the new ones?”
Whenever I get new books from the mail or even books I buy from bookstores, I stack them on top of an ongoing pile surrounding my couch. If I get a high enough tower of new books, I start a new stack. I have two full bookshelves already so I have nowhere else to put them until I get another bookshelf, which I can’t really afford right now.
Scotty used to complain about the piles of books surrounding me because I have to tiptoe around and jump over piles of books just to try to get out of my little area in the living room trying to avoid knocking my book towers over. He’s used to it now and he just smiles and shakes his head when he sees me struggling to get out of my side of the couch.
As for the order, I really don’t care much about the order of which I got the books. I just pick up any book from my pile that I feel like reading and it doesn’t matter whether I got that a long time ago or just recently. Of course this is not including the books I receive for review, which I usually read as soon as I can.
For The Readers: Do you put your new books in the bookshelf as soon as you get them or do you have the same tower-piling method that I have? Do you know any tiptoeing/jumping techniques you can teach me that you do yourself to when trying to walk around your towers of books?
