We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Do you keep zines or pass them on after reading?

Do you keep zines or pass them on after reading? I kind of want to keep the zines to have a historical document of life in the real world today. However, I am a stasher, storer, hoarder, and keeper by nature, and my 4 book cases are full. I'm going to list my zines read on bookmooch.com for now. If someone wants one, they can mooch it for free.

I like zines!

I keep some and I pass others along. I tend to hoard books, movies, and other media, but I also like to share things. I guess I'm more likely to share the ones I get for free.
Yeah, I'm keeping the Allergies: How to Deal Zine. And I'll probably put White Elephants in my Mom's Christmas stocking. I think she'd get a kick out of that.

I always try to keep them
I keep them, then lend them, which often leads to not keeping them, so it's a happy medium.
I tend to keep them. I often intend to pass them on, then can't bring myself to!
I keep most of my zines with the view to maiing them accessible to others sometime in the future. I dont re-read many though
I used to keep all of them. But a lot of times I'll read a zine and think, "This would be perfect for," whoever and pass it along to them. But some zinesters I keep everything of theirs because I think they should be archived. Someone mentioned White Elephants--I keep everything by Katie H.
oh, i definitely keep them.. i like to re-read them.. everyone does them so different, each with a piece of themselves inside.. they are all unique..
i have a huge box in my closet that i keep meaning to go through to donate to the zine library. but i never get around to it and so it moves with me.
I like the idea of donating to a zine library. Is there a handy list of zine libraries online?

I keep the ones that especially resonate with me and pass on ones that might resonate better with other people. Pass-ons usually go to Octapod or creative friends in need of some inspiration. Nothing's wasted or binned!
