Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop hosted by crazy-for-books.com.  Click on the icon above to be taken to a list of book blogs...it's enjoyable to peruse and you may just find a couple of fun blogs to follow!  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?

Welp, I try to use the library as often as possible for the majority of my reading.  I live in a tiny little bungalow which is already overflowing with books so I attempt to keep my buying to a minimum.

When I do purchase books I either use half.com (for cheapness factor...I don't mind gently used books) or I buy books from the amazing independent store in town called Boxcar Books which is a non-profit volunteer-run little gem!


What about you guys?  Where do you buy your books?

  5. Yay for indie bookstores!! :) While I don't buy too many books, I always try to visit my bookstore first - they're great!

  6. 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

  7. space can really be an issue can't it. One reason I like the nook but I still like the feel of a book in my hands. I use the library a lot too.

  8. Hopping over and I'm a new follower! I try to check out books, and the bookstore where I work lets me do that as well, so that is nice. I like my Nook e-reader, but some books I still need to own. Hope you'll stop by my blog as well: http://misclisa.blogspot.com/
