Book Hoarding Tag

1. Book you should get rid of, but have trouble for some reason. Why? Proud to have read it? Was a gift? Want to read it? Emotional attachment? I do not know if I am emotionally attached to any of my books. I suppose in the end if I have a Bible in my immediate possession I am OK.

2. Compulsive Collecting, What book or edition would you covet or dream of owning? A rare book? Signed? 1st Edition? Some other trophy find? I dream of owning someday Anthony Powell's 12 volume cycle 'A Dance to the Music of Time'

3. Safety Among Clutter, what book makes you feel cozy? Nothing makes me feel cozy in this dead American world.

4. Nostalgic Memories, what book has a story? How you got it, where you were when you read it? Impact? Just can’t explain? I have several books in my library that have a story.

5. Don’t Touch My Stuff! What book will you not lend out? Or have a fear of losing? Treasure the most? Why? I do not lend my any of books out.

6. Procrastination, Anxiety, Quirky Personality, what book is so delicious that you’ve cancelled plans to read? Or would cancel? I personally spend most of my time either reading or writing. I do not have a social life. My life is books and writing.

7. Impulsive Buying, what book did you buy completely unplanned and on a whim? Why? Will you read it? Did you already get rid of it? I buy books that fit our library. I am a book collector. I do not buy books on a whim or impulsively. I buy books that I know something about either through research or reading reviews.
