Aloha Friday!

An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question for YOU:
Do you giveaway a book as soon as you read it or do you like to have as many bookshelves around the house filled with books?

I love to read. I love the look of Books. So for me the more books I get the More shelves my husband puts up for me lol

I normally try and not buy books and just use the library, but on the rare occasion that I do buy one, I loan it out to a friend or give it to the library

We are big fans of the library. I figure if my tax money is going to it I might as well take advantage. I love being able to request books online and just stopping to pick them up. Of course I also have a large collection of my own books thanks to teaching.

Yes I give the book away as soon as I read it because I have never read a book more than once.

I used to have a lot of books but it is hard to keep them clean and free of dust, that is why I would rather pass them on to someone else to read and enjoy.

I love to read so I have a nice collection. I like to keep most of them because I will reread books. I do loan them out to family though. If it isn't one of my favorites I give them away.

I MUST keep my books . . . unless I did not like it. :)

Vicki said...

I usually keep them, but if someone asks to read it after I'm done I'll give it to them

I have a Sony digital reader so all my books are stored on the unit. Talk about a space saver!

We have a kindle but mostly my husband uses it so except for collecting cookbooks, I like to pass them on

I love books and often read them over and over again.

I have a serious problem parting with books. Might need counseling.

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
