Babies and toddlers join in an exuberant celebration of books of all shapes and sizes in this charming picture book. For little kids, books can be anything from a chair, to a tower, to a hat. But once little ones discover the magical world that can be found inside a book, the best thing a book can beis a book! This joy of discovery is evident on the faces of these little kids as they open up a book and find a favorite story. In short, this book about books is so adorable and tempting, it will have toddlers and parents running to libraries and bookstores everywhere.

When a bookworm moves...and I‘ve already moved over one bookcase with two still to unload

So my book organization project with my 8 year old did not go as well as I‘d hoped. She wanted to hang on to EV.ER.Y.THING.
The big box is stuff she agreed to put into storage, so some progress was made there. The other small pile is what she agreed to donate. 🤦🏻‍♀️. Her shelves are still overflowing and there are two bins under her bed. More shelves it is, then. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

SmartBookaholicsIncBookstore Can never have to many books 🤷😝 4mo
Crazeedi You're starting her young! Way to go mom!!😉❤ 4mo
Scochrane26 You might have a book hoarder. 😂😁 4mo
MelissaSue81 @Scochrane26 - I for sure do. She‘s a hoarder in general. I will say, my 10 year olds hoarding tendencies decreased dramatically with in the past year or so, so there is hope for improvement. 4mo

1. Oh yes, absolutely! There are books everywhere. Some books I have since 2006 and are still unread.
2. When it's conceivable that I might not finish all the books I have right now before I die and that I feel guilty when I buy/get new books.



catiewithac I have books from 1994 on my TBR list... 4mo
Tineke @catiewithac, o I was six back then😂 I sure hope I would have finished those books. For me it got out of hand when I discovered bookcrossing and found likeminded people who also loved to read and wanted to share their books. It went fast... 4mo

Yesterday, whilst going about my day to day business, I thought I‘d just take a look at all the places I hoard books. In addition to the actual bookshelves in my house, I seem to squirrel away books in the following:
*bedside table (top left)
*sidetable in lounge (bottom right)
*bottom drawer of desk at work (top right)
*door pocket of my car (bottom left)
Not pictured, my handbag which currently has 2 books in it! I‘ll never be without a book!

14. Any of the trillions by Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman

Saturday was working day for me and I had the opportunity to watch vibraphonist who, when she didn‘t play she read the book. I admire everyone who can read in such a noise, I can‘t...

RachelO That's so neat! It looks like you work somewhere really interesting? 2y
SilversReviews Pretty cool. Fun job. 2y
Simona @SilversReviews It was very, very cool, because I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Placido Domingo.🤩 2y

Simona @RachelO My work has advantages and disadvantages like the most jobs ... I work on TV in production, usually dealing with some technical (boring) stuff. 2y
SilversReviews @Simona Wow!! Nice. 2y
LeahBergen Oh, cool! 2y
UwannaPublishme I admire that because I need a quiet space to read. 2y
Simona @UwannaPublishme I don't need an absolute silence, but orchestra which rehearses, well it‘s too much noise for me ... 2y

When you do a book purge, what do you do with your books? Library? Thrift store? Sell? Book Fairies?

ralexist Donate to the library :) 2y
Owlizabeth Library! 2y
SpeculativeFemale I take them to my favorite second-hand bookstore for store credit. 2y

Suzze Friends of the Library book sale. 2y
moranadatter A mix of donations, sales and giveaways. 2y
Eryn2513 What is this "book purge" that you speak of?? #bookhoarder ?? 2y
Gezemice Donate to library. I children's books are involved, give it to someone with small kids. 2y
BookishGirl06 I sell to a used book store and whatever they don't take will be donated 2y
Yeah_I_Read I just donated 5 big boxes of books to the library and then I went to the library book sale and almost bought some back 😂😂😂 2y
dariazeoli Donate to a Little Free Library. But my purges are small these days! 2y
faelinwolf I took my books to 2nd & Charles & got cash for almost all of them. You can get store credit too. I've heard Half Price Books does the same. I needed the money for my upcoming move! 2y
AThousandLives87 I give them to Friends of the Library. Hat was a huge purge though I filled up their bins and then had use boxes. Lol. But small purges I'll do giveaways for here on Litsy or give to friends if they want them. 2y
MaleficentBookDragon @dariazeoli I just put together a bag of books that I'm going to take with me on a Little Free Library hunt tomorrow. 2y
MaleficentBookDragon @Eryn2513 I know. I keep looking at the pile and putting them back in my shelves. 🤣 2y
Karkar I take them to little free libraries, give them to friends, or send them to the troops. 2y
That-Bookish-Hiker I sell them to a used bookstore and whatever's left donate. 2y
MaleficentBookDragon @Karkar oh I like that. I have to see about sending them to the troops. 2y
ReadingEnvy I have a process. First, used bookstore to see what they will take for trade credit. Then take pics of spines for my local reading friends. Then I donate the rest to our local literacy association because they hold an annual book sale to help with literacy education in my community. 2y
prowlix Depending on where you live, you can also donate some books to prison system or hospitals. I usually donate mine to my local library but have started to look at some other causes 2y
Crystalblu My local Animal Save has a book room at their thrift shop, so that is typically where mine go after I pull out some for friends. And, I keep a box in my car for when I see a free little library ;) 2y
drokka Depending on where you are, some armed forces are gagging for books, especially fiction. Also, women's shelters, Brothers & Sisters chapters, charity shops, libraries, lit associations, public transport seats, park benches, LFL. Having said that, I only give romances away to family who rotate them through. I know nothing of purges on a personal level 2y

😳 18 years and 9 months?!?! I feel that I should point out that my #TBR pile was only 8 years long before I joined Litsy 😂 #BlameItOnLitsy

If you haven't checked out how long it'll take to get through your TBR pile, here's the link: http://www.readitforward.com/tbr-time/ #tbrcalculator #readitforward

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I haven't done this for awhile.... let's see what the damage is currently.... 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa About the same time as you! Haha totally doable! 👍 2y
BookHermit I'm afraid this calculation doesn't account for the variable monthly exponential growth rate of one's TBR 🤔 2y
TK-421 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa As long as my tbr pile doesn't increase by 10 years for every year spent on Litsy, I'll be OK! 2y
TK-421 @BookHermit For exactly that reason, I think I'll be checking it every few months to make sure the tbr pile doesn't get too out of hand... (edited) 2y

Houston, MrBook has a problem here! Suitcase is full.
That's correct. I repeat, suitcase is full! 😱😱😱 #BEA17

tapgurl That's going to be heavy! 2y
Zelma That happened to me at one of my ALA conferences. I had to run out the morning of my flight to buy another small suitcase. Mr. Z refers to it as my emergency book bag. 2y
Dogearedcopy Go to a mailing place, buy a box & tape, pack the box up on the sidewalk (you are not allowed to pack boxes inside); and then ship them to yourselves! Even if are relatively local, this safes your back! 2y

Jokila Good luck with that one!! 🙈 2y
BookBabe 😂🙌🏻 2y
Shvonne I second @Dogearedcopy's idea. Go to the post office 2y
rustoryhuf I was like that at ALA Midwinter. Luckily I had my car and filled my trunk, but then there was little room for my suitcase. 2y

Zelma 😂😂 3y
stargazerblue49 @hgrimes You are not alone! I never post my month-in-review because I am very self conscious about how little I read compared to my litsy friend haha 3y
hgrimes @stargazerblue49 haha, same here! My stats are nothing to brag about! If I could just find a way to dump my lifesucking job, maybe I can catch up. 3y
Faibka 👍yes, many TBR bookcases! 3y

#photoadaynov16 day 15: #booknerdproblems
Books always everywhere.

On the floor. On the coffee table. On the chair. On the dining table. Under the dining table. In the car. Everywhere

The good news is we've got some new bookshelves coming!
