What I think about *Book Hauls*
But I've noticed lately that a bunch of people don't. They think it's "gloating" or "bragging", and I disagree. It's just a way of sharing your excitement over books that you got! That's all I think it is. Sometimes, maybe we're gloating. That's usually not how it goes, though. Usually it's just GENUINE excitement.
Recently I've quit doing them because I got a little flack about it, and because it just doesn't fit into my schedule anymore. I just don't have the time to take pictures of my books, and then link them all up on goodreads. I just can't, and I LURVE surprising y'all with what I'm reading! It's so nice to be able to just put my books up on the shelf when I get them. Those are my reasons for quitting the book hauls-- lack of time.
Sometimes I miss doing it, but I'm mostly at peace with my decision. I'm just curious as to why some people don't like them, though. I'd love some opinions!
