Personal Library

Hello Lovelies!

I’ve been collecting books since I became a reader in Middle School. I’ve kept most of my childhood books and then continued to grow my collection throughout the years. Most books are ones that I’ve purchased myself. I’ve bought books from Borders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, local Indie bookstores, thrift stores, yard sales, library sales, used bookstores, Target, Walmart, Book Outlet and more. I’ve also received them as gifts from friends and family.

Needless to say, I own A LOT of books. I’ve been fortunate enough to have the privilege of having the income to purchase these books and the time to shop. I was also working as a Librarian for about 6 years which also gave me access to library book sales and some physical and digital ARCs.

Recently, I’ve been also privileged to have the income to purchase some special editions. I was originally subscribing to one or two book boxes when they first hit the scene, but then pulled back because of finances only to now be sort of sucked back in. With that said, I don’t have an active subscription with any book box right now, but I’ve been following some special edition releases with a few of them.

Ok, Nicole, why all this explaination? Mainly, I just wanted to give some context around my physical library collection. I own a large amount of books. It can seem excessive and could also turn some of you off. I’m completely okay with that, but I just don’t want anyone to feel like you need to own as many books as I do in order to have a “personal library” or to be a “reader” or a good “bookstagrammer / booktoker.” That is not my intention with sharing my collection. My intention is just to share the books I own with anyone whose interested or curious.

So without further adieu, here’s a link to my public Libib library: Nicole Lynn’s Library

Please note that this is only my physical book collection. I have a very large digital collection as well. Mainly because I’ve been following discount and free e-book emails and events like stuff your kindle day. I don’t typically buy e-books that are more than $5.00. If they’re more than $5.00 I tend to buy the physical book if I really want to read or I borrow it from the library.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have 🙂
