Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee @ Parajunkee’s View and Alison @ Alison Can Read. Each week the two hosts post a question for Book Bloggers to answer, provide a link-up, and choose a participant to feature on their blogs. If you participate, the point is to follow others and in return gain followers.

Yay for the end of the week and new friends 😀 Early this morning I received an email from Alison @ Alison Can Read informing me that I was the FEATURED BLOGGER this week!!!

I’m excited if you can’t tell 😀 I’ve seen Feature & Follow Friday floating around the blogosphere for some time now and last week I decided to particpate as a part of my New Year, New Me goals. I had no idea I’d be chosen. It’s exciting and I love meeting everyone!! To see my interview questions, head over to Alison’s post.

So on to today’s question: Do you own any doubles of your books? What led to getting that second…or third or fourth…copy? – Suggested by A Great Read.

I’m a bit of a book addict….okay that’s a lie I am a BIG book addict. The only thing that stops me from having a gigantic library full of books is the fact that we live in an apartment and have moved 5 times in 9 years with at least one, possibly 2 more moves on the horizon. So a lot of my books are ebooks, they’re just easier to transport that way 😉

BUT….

I still have a lot of actual physical copies of all my favorite books. (I’m out of town so no pics of my actual library).

7 copies – Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen…not only do I own 4 different ecopy versions (I’m a sucker for pretty covers) but I also have 3 hard copies: one that I’ve read so much the pages are falling out, one that’s just really pretty sitting on my shelf, and the other is a part of the complete Jane Austen collection.

3 copies – The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer…why, yes I do like my vampires sparkly 😀 I got addicted to this series several years back by a girl I work with. My first set I bought at the local Wally World and read until I got my first Kindle. Then I bought the ecopies. Two years ago, my husband surprised me for Christmas with the pretty special editions and to his surprise when I opened them they were signed!!

This is all that I own actual physical doubles of, however I could continue with the rest of my library. Pretty much if a book is really good, I get it on my Kindle so I have an easy portable version. If the ebook is really good or one I want to read again or (since I’m a cover snob) if the cover is really pretty, I get it for my bookshelf.

What books do you have double or more of?

  1. Congrats on being the featured blogger, I’m definitely hopping through and following you. *g* I think I followed you from the last one. 🙂

    Oh wow, that’s a lot of shiny-ness going on with the Twilight series. I just have the one finished set of it. But, I think I have doubles of one of the classics, though I can’t really put my finger on which one it is. I do have some doubles of other’s that were ARC’s and then I ended up buying the finished copy or that I forgot I already had a copy and bought or was gifted another one. lol.

    Happy Reading and Hopping! 🙂

  2. Congrats on being featured blogger! I’m new follower via bloglovin.

    I am, too, a little bit book addict (okay, a lot) and multiple copies of my favourite books are must. Especially if I get some copy signed then I just have to buy a copy that isn’t because I’m not going to remove the signed one from my shelves (or let anyone else touch it). A little bit obsessive, that’s me 😀

  3. I love Jane Austen and found Emma to be one of my favorites in school. Then I switched to Mansfield Park and now I think I just love them all equally. I’ve gotten so much better in storing books and have parted ways with many of them I never thought I would, but after children and lack of space, priorities changed. I love that you have so many copies of Pride and Prejudice and I still hear Meg Ryan explaining Elizabeth Bennet to Tom Hanks in You’ve Got Mail, which makes me smile. She’s a character that’s so dear to so many and has made her mark throughout the years.

  4. Congrats on being the featured blogger this week!!! I have a lot of books as e-books as well. Mostly because I already have so many books and we have a small house with 2 kids. I am running out of room. So my guy wants me to mostly get them as e-books. But I do have several as both e-books and physical books.
    I think it is pretty awesome that you have 7 copies of P&P! I still haven’t read it but I plan to change that.
    I am the exact same way…I love having the physical books, but I love having favorites also on my Kindle so they can go where ever with me.
    Great post!

  5. Congratulations on being featured!!! I really like your blog! I get e-books first and then, like you, if I really liked the book, I’ll get the paper book. I’d love to buy for the pretty covers too, but I just don’t have enough shelf space for that. Congrats again and Happy Friday!!

    7 copies of Pride and Prejudice? Wow, that’s quite a lot to me! I don’t own any multiple copies of my books actually.
