Got Too Many Books?



When Brian and I moved in together we discover that I had one of us had way too many books! I love to collect them but more often then not never read a book twice (there are way too many great books out there to re-read stories, I want to read them all)! I came up with a solution. I would only keep the books that I absolutely loved! There was just one problem...how would I remember all the books I read and what I thought about them? That is when this altered notebook came into being. I print off the cover of the book and the back blurb then I fix them into this notebook along with my thoughts/opinions about the book and give it a star rating. Photographed here is the cover of my notebook and a sampling of what is inside. Thanks for looking!

This is a fantastic idea! I literally have a pile of books sitting in a bin that I just decided I need to clean out and have not been able to bring myself to get rid of them. Now I might have a solution!

This is such a great idea!! I have books everywhere! What do you do with your books? I don't know anyone else who loves to read as much as me. I even listen to books on CD in the car. Thanks for the great idea!

Wow, that is really awesome! I love the way you did the numbers. I may "scraplift" this. ;)
