Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. It was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. 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. 

This week’s topic is:

Are books a must-have in your home? 

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

This seems a bit of a silly question, being a book blogger and a librarian, I of course have books in my home. But I can see where even some avid readers might not have many books around. In this day and age of electronic books, having physical copies is not as important. Especially for young people who have to move around alot as they change jobs or even apartments, carrying a lot of books in hard.

Being a much older person and one who has lived in my home for over 20 years, I have accumulated a lot of books. Although maybe not as many as you might think. I do regular purges of my books so that they don’t end up taking over my space. Most of the books that I do keep are favorites that I reread from time to time, and a few from my childhood as well. My husband and I are planning on moving sometime in the near future to a smaller home, so I am foreseeing a big purge sometime soon.

I will be interested in seeing what others have to say on this topic.
