  1. I try to never throw out electronics as well. This is my first time to your blog. Love the graphics. See you on Sunday posts @theglobaldig.blogspot.com

  2. I have all of my old phones. I find it hard to get rid of them, mostly for sentimental reasons. This week I only bought Hands Down by Mariana Zapata. I managed not to buy more books than that, and that's good because my TBR is huge and I need to try to make a dent in it. I hope you'll enjoy all your books. Stay safe and happy reading.

  3. We usually end up giving our old phones to our kids when we upgrade. The library event sounds fun. Ours isn't open for event yet.

  4. You do such a great job of finding online events. Even when I know about them I can't seem to motivate myself to get beyond my normal activities which is mostly chores and reading. I still have my last phone because Charlie Hunnam used it several times to take pictures of us, although he has used my new one once also. It's a backup for my new one also, since it still works, it just doesn't have as much memory for my audiobooks.

    Have a wonderful week and stay well!

    Anne - Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post

  5. Our library is only open to dispense books that have been pre-ordered at present - I'm hoping the new normal doesn't mean we'll have to do without it for the rest of the year! Have a great week:)

  6. I need to have a purge of electronics, my husband still has a twenty five year old Nokia in his bedside drawer!

  7. We participated in a phone drive for a military organization once a few years ago, but we usually manage to sell our old ones. I love that you found a volunteer event to recycle them.
    Loved your Paris posts this past week. :)

    Have a good week. :)

  8. My phone needs tossing since it’s 4 years old but I can’t afford to replace it. It annoys me how quickly they become obsolete because of software upgrades.

    Wishing you a great reading week
