This week on BTT:
If your house was burning down and you could save just one book from your collection … what would it be?
What a tough question, but I went with the first thing that came to my mind: my Harry Potter books. These books may not be my favourite books or the most useful (like my cooking or crafting books), but I bought books 4-7 the day they came out and the series was a unique experience for me. I really don’t know when I will ever buy books the way they were released after years of anticipation between books. Most of my fiction books are used, but I bought new and no one gave any of them to me. As a book experience, they are special among my relatively small collection of books (I have less than 100 books to my name).
How about you?
I have way too many books, which I realized as I scanned my shelves trying to decide. In the end, here’s MY BTT POST
Hi Laurel! It is tough, but I answered the questions away from my books so I decided to go with the first thing off the top of my head and whatever is closest is probable. Thanks!
Harry Potter is a popular choice today.
Hi Tribute Books Mama! Not a surprise since it is a popular series in and of itself and for those of us who grew up with it, like me, it’s doubtful we’ll experience another book buying anticipation experience like it again. Thanks!
If there wasn’t much time to choose, it would have to be the closest.
Hi Tribute Books Mama. I would do the same to be honest and also the library books since they aren’t exactly mine. Hehe. Have a good day!
I would have to save The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien not just because I love the book because of the childhood memories I have of my father reading it to me.
Hi Jessica! I agree it’s not always our most favourite books that we would save, but the ones which also carry sentimental value. Thanks!
