Book Blogger Hop | Finding Room for Books

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


When you run out of bookshelf space, what do you do?

(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)


Mostly I get eBooks, so that is not an issue anymore. But, back when I was all about the physical copies, my home office had all walls covered in bookshelves and both of my daughters had bookshelves in their rooms – so plenty of book space. Occasionally, we would go through and pull books to sell, donate, or give away. I would box up ones I wanted to keep but felt I could remove and put them in storage to make room. Can ebook shelves get filled up? I hope not because mine are very full always 😊

How do you make more room for books?

  1. I’m a fellow convert to the e-reader. I never thought I’d like it better than a real book but what’s great is when I don’t have my glasses I can change the font size and still read 😄

  2. I generally buy ebooks unless I can get a signed copy from the author. When I run out of room, I shove them wherever they’ll fit (hubby keeps telling me I should alphabetize, but that’s just wasting good reading time). I also donate to the library when I’m overflowing.

    1. Alphabetize! I can’t even imagine. My oldest daughter did that once but we severely mocked her…okay, not severely but we did have some fun over it 😁 eBooks are the best – so versatile and easy to cart around.

  3. I only get the physical copy if it’s a book I REALLY want to own (I love having the whole Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell on my bookshelf) or if a publisher wants to send me an ARC. For everything else its ebook. So space isn’t a huge issue.

    I also use the library a fair bit and, 9 times out 10, if I buy a book from a charity shop I tend to donate it back to the same shop after reading.

  4. When I run out of space on shelves, I resort to using the floor. Every week I take 3 books from the shelves and decode whether they stay or go – I do a post about this, asking other bloggers for their opinions.

  5. Lol! I’m an ebook convert too, Tessa. But. I still like to own print books from my favourite authors so I have to be careful. I box the books I don’t want to read or showcase anymore up in our loft space. Hubby worries that we’ll run out of space up there soon too! Lol!

  6. It’s kind of amazing how kindles/readers have changed our need for more and more bookcases. It sounds like our strategies are the same, Tessa. I still have physical books, of course, and my favorite reads will be with me forever, but my kindle is my go-to bookshelf these days.

    1. I’ve been surprised to see how many people have gone to ereaders too. It really is the most practical way though❤️. Have a lovely Sunday!
