Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is Books I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch.
The following are books that I own that I wouldn’t lend out to anyone.
Here we go…
- Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
- Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith
- Nikki Heat series by Richard Castle
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
- Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella
- Either of my fairy tale anthologies: Annotated Brothers Grimm and The Classic Fairy Tales (Norton Edition)
- Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography
- Arranging & Describing Archives and Manuscripts by Kathleen D. Roe
- Digital Preservation for Libraries, Archives, and Museums by Edward M. Corrado and Heather Moulaison Sandy
- The Discipline of Organizing edited by Robert J. Glushko
I clearly keep any and all of the series I own under lock and key. The last three are some of my school textbooks which I consider invaluable, even if there are often new editions that make mine a little outdated 🙂
If you happen to be on the incredibly short list of people who have borrowed one or more of these books from me, congratulations! I trust you with my life 😉
