There isn't a middle ground in those top options... I keep them until i run out of shelf space, then pack them in boxes and promote them to the attic THEN sell them when the landlady complains...

Charity Shops, second hand bookstores. Surely its that simple if you haven't any space. The book mooch things seems interesting though.


Simple? Have you ever gone into one of those book stores? There are little old ladies that leap on you feeding from your young blood in those places!

I'm currently trying to operate book mooch... failing!!

I keep mine, I really cant part with my favourite books. I have kept all Robert's books that I have bought and Tess Gerritsens and Marian Keyes too but others I tend to swap on Bookhopper.com or give to my friends.
