Books That I Have Acquired By Questionable Means

Since I don't have a review ready to post for today and I feel like I should post something, here is a list of the books I have in my possession that I have acquired by questionable means. I guess only one is really kinda bad, but I technically shouldn't really have these books at all. So here they are for your viewing pleasure!

1. The House of Thirty Cats by Mary Calhoun

I guess this is probably the only book I have for this list that I snatched with the intention of keeping it forever. This was on the bookshelves in my 4th grade classroom. And I read it and quite enjoyed it and I guess the crazy cat lady in me took over and I took this one home with me and never looked back. If I remember correctly, it brought little 9-10 year old me to tears. It's quite well loved.


2. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

This was a book that I somehow managed to steal from my senior English class in high school. I don't remember why I still have this. I guess I must have just forgotten to return it and the teacher never noticed. I didn't love this book or anything. I'm certain I still have this one by accident.


3. Ending Violence in Teen Dating Relationships by Al Miles

This one I stumbled across while I was doing my internship for college. I put in 150 hours at the local women's shelter/ supervised visitation center. I was doing some office work for them and found this book and I was looking at it and they told me I could borrow it and I forgot to ever bring it back before my hours were done. Oopsie!

Do you have any books acquired questionably? How'd you get them? :)

  1. LOL oops? I love this post! Questionable means... hmm, not really. I generally buy mine, or they're sent to me. Although, one time, I won a copy of a book, and then won another copy of the same book, and I didn't do the polite thing and say that I had already won one. I felt bad and immediately gave away the second copy on my blog! Idk if that's questionable or not but I certainly felt guilty and never did that again :D

    1. Haha, I don't think that's as bad as 4th grade me blatantly stealing books from school! At least you felt bad, I never did as far as I remember!
