Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee @Β Parajunkee’s View and Alison @Β 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 πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜€ 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:Β Do you own any doubles of your books? What led to getting that second…or third or fourth…copy? – Suggested byΒ 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 πŸ˜‰

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 –Β 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 –Β The Twilight SagaΒ by Stephanie Meyer…why, yes I do like my vampires sparkly πŸ˜€ 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?Β

    • Does it make it better that the 4 ebooks were freebies πŸ˜€ I didnt realize I had that many either. What can I say?! I LOVE Pride & Prejudice!

  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. πŸ™‚

    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! πŸ™‚

  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 πŸ˜€

  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.
