Book Blogger Hop (1)

Book Blogger Hop
Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.

This week's question:

How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

I get almost all my books from the library--my local library has a really good YA selection. The only problem is that you have to get on the waiting list for almost any well-known or new YA, which means sometimes I have to wait a few months for a book that I want. So when there's a book that I don't want to wait for at the library, I'll go to the bookstore--usually Borders since it's right by my work. I'll also buy books on my Kindle if I want a book but don't want to make the effort to go to the bookstore. I used to buy way more books, but a lack of shelf space and money got me hooked on the library.

  1. I used to love in my library checking out stacks at a time. But now I mainly buy. I really should check my library out because they just tore down the old one and built a shiny, brand new one in town. New follower! Have a good weekend.

  4. I get many of my books at the Kindle store too. The Kindle is a wonderful way to save space.

  8. I'm just the opposite. Two years ago I started tracking where my books were coming from. Please come see where I get my books.

  9. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer – http://www.howardsherman.net
