Booking through Thursday - Where Do You Keep Unread Books?

Follow-up to last week’s question:

Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along?

My Answer: All of my unread books are together. I have a separate stack of books that I've read and I also have books that I read stored in my basement. These days I'm trying not to keep too many books that I've already read. I rarely re-read, so there's no point in keeping everything. I'll either put them up for trade on PBS or Bookmooch or possibly save some for book giveaways here. Simply because I just don't have the room for them all anymore.

As for the unreads, they are boxed up in big tubs in my guest room and some are downstairs in the den. That way I can be sick when I see all that I still have to read, as I yell at myself for getting more (not that it stops me).


  1. My unread books are all over the placed, mixed, separate, whatever!

    TBR: mixed reactions?

  2. I don't really have room for all those books I've already read, either. But the concept of getting rid of books fills me with horror! Sooner or later, I guess I'm going to have to get over that, or move to a bigger place.

  3. I'm going to have to think about culling soon . . . but I plan to put off the evil moment as long as possible!

  4. Mine are all now overflowing in my book cases!

  5. I need more bookcases! My unread pile keeps growing.

  6. LOL I know exactly what you mean about the sight of all those unread books not being the deterrent you want it to be. That is true for me too. :-)
