Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books, where book bloggers answer a weekly question and “hop” around different blogs to share their thoughts!
This week’s question is…
How many books do you own? This can include books in your to-be-read (TBR) pile(s) and books you have already read that are on your keeper shelf.
That’s a good question. Am I supposed to feel pleased at the fact that they can be tabulated? >.< Actually, that depends on which genres of books you’ll consider, because really, I have LOADS of picture books dating back from kindergarten :p I actually went to count them, and it brought back lovely childhood memories. The books generally go along the lines of “Jane likes dogs”, “Peter likes dogs” and “They like dogs”, which sounds very silly now, yet one doesn’t simply forget her once-favourite bedtime stories. Um, I used to fantasize Jane and Peter as a romantic couple. Yes, at the age of 5. And yes, it felt really sweet. Gawd, what happened to me? xD
Oops, sorry, I tend to sidetrack when I get sentimental!!! Okay, on to serious stuff. I don’t exactly have a keeper shelf because my mom doesn’t approve of me spending too much of her money on books therefore I do a lot of borrowing from the national libraries instead (which is the perfect place on earth!). In all honesty, series make up the most of my books at home, so here are a few:
- Harry Potter series
- Twilight saga
- Hunger Games series
- The Chronicles of Narnia series
You may do the calculation at your own free time :) That being said, I have a considerable number of classics piling up and collecting dust in a inconspicuous section of my bookshelf, heheh. Other books can be found as reviews on my blog so take your time to cruise around!
As for to-be-read… That’s tricky. Some books have been on my TBR for so long it gets overly convenient to just sweep them out of my mind. *shoots furtive glances at my shelves* Let’s keep it at 30, to make me feel better, thank you.
/Note to self: Better read more this week or your book debt is just going to grow grow grow!/
How many books are piling up your shelves?
