Follow Friday: Book Duplicates
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
Do you own any doubles of your books? What led to getting that second...or third or fourth...copy? - Suggested by A Great Read.
There are really only two reasons this happens to me:
|Books I wasn't very kind to and had to buy replacements.|
1) My favorite series (like Wheel of Time) that I read over and over I often have more than one kind of copy. Especially for later books, when I was caught up to the most recently published book in the series, I might have a hard copy. But then later I bought a paperback. And maybe an ecopy too so I could read on my kindle app. Or, you know, one book gets totally beat up and is falling apart, so I buy another, but can't bear to throw the old one, complete with highlights and margin annotations, away. Yeah, I'm sentimental that way. :D
|Both hardback and paperback version of HP#3|
2) I've gotten multiple copies of the same book for Christmas before. It's almost always my fault because I'll tell multiple people of a book I'm specifically hoping to get, and then have the nerve to be surprised when more than one person gets it for me. If one of the copies is an ecopy or was purchased online, returns become tricky. More than once I've just shrugged it off and decided I have a nice gift for the next brother whose birthday comes along. :D
How about you? Have you found yourself in similar situations?
