Book Buying Habits Tag.


I was tagged by the lovely Brianna @ Paperback Bri (I love her blog name! ) I really love her blog, so if you haven’t already, check out her blog, and give her a follow!

1 // Where do you buy your books from?
I buy my books from Half Price Books, Book Outlet, or Book Depository. Mostly from Half Price Books, because they are so cheap, and in good condition, and I don’t have to pay for shipping cause it’s not online.

2 // Do you ever pre-order books and if so do you do this in store or online?
IΒ think I’ve only pre-ordered one book before, and it came pretty quickly, but I don’t usually feel the need to pre-order books. Anyway, I pre-ordered it online from Amazon.

3 // On average, how many books do you buy a month?
I’ve been doing real good lately. I actually didn’t buy any books for myself this month, cause it was my birthday and I just had other people buy them for me! Mwahahaha! πŸ˜‰ All joking aside, I buy like 2-3 books a month.

4 // Do you use your local library?
No. I don’t want to get into it. I’m not a snob or anything…I do buy used books, but I can’t even, with library books anymore…I haven’t been to the library in like 4 years!!

5 // What is your opinion on library books?
It’s great if you like to go to the library, you can save SO MUCH money. But I just can’t with all the germs! 😐 I know I said I buy used books, but if you think about it, I would say that less than five people have read the book before I bought it, but at the library, hundreds and thousands of people read that exact book, and most people aren’t very cautious when it comes to hand washing and hygiene. Sorry bout it.

6 // How do you feel about second hand books?
I can do second hand books, but I am very anal about their condition. If it is all bend out of shape, I might still get it, but if there are stains…NO THANKS!!Β 

7 // Do you keep your TBR pile on your main bookshelves or no?
My bookshelf doesn’t even exist right now…I should probably take care of that…

8 // Do you plan to read all of the books you own?
Of Course! I always plan to read them, it just doesn’t happen as fast as I would like.

9 // What do you do with books do you feel you will never read/did not enjoy?
I give them away, or sell them to a used bookstore.

10 // Have you ever donated books?

11 // Have you ever been on a book buying ban?
Yes, I tried, but it didn’t work. :\

12 // Do you feel that you buy too many books?
Yes, because half of the time I read them a year after I buy them, and that’s really bad!Β

  1. Thank you so much for the tag! I really like this one. I totally agree with you about the library books, although I tend to try not to think about all of the germs that come with them. I also do not have a bookshelf, so I’m glad I’m not alone with that. Lol πŸ˜·πŸ™ˆ

  2. I never thought about all the places and all the people that library books cycle through until now. Damn, I keep thinking of an old episode of Seinfeld about a bathroom book now. 😦
