Book Buying Habits Tag

Hello Hello, time for another book tag that has absolutely no pictures 😦 I put a gif or two in but there really wasn’t any way for me to make this more fun and that sucks. I did include links to the websites that I talked about but other than that it’s pretty straight forward. I hope you enjoy the tag and I tag anyone who wants to do this!

Where do you buy your books from?

I normally buy my books from Barnes and Noble because I have a membership there and I just love the atmosphere so every time I go in I end up picking up a book. I also order books from Amazon and Bookoutlet quite frequently. I will very rarely buy a book or two from Books-a-million because it’s the closest bookstore to me and sometimes they have good books on sale.

Do you ever pre-order books and if so, do you do this in-store or online?

I love pre-ordering books and I always do it through Amazon because then I get the book on the day it comes out!

On average, how many books do you buy a month?

It depends on the month really but it can be anywhere from 2 to 10. It’s defiantly higher if I order from Bookoutlet because you really can’t beat the deals.

Do you use your local library?

I do, not as much as I used to but I do still go sometimes.

If so, how many do you borrow at a time?

I always say that I’m only going to check out one or two but I always find books that I’ve been dying to read so sometimes I’ll walk out with anywhere from two to eight books. I think the most I’ve checked out at one time was about 15 and that was because it was summer break and the only library around was the one at school.

What’s your opinion on library books?

I love them a lot. They are always kept in such good condition and you can always leave recommendations on the shelves.

How do you feel about charity shop/second-hand books?

Literally the greatest thing! You can find such great books in second-hand shops for such a good price.

Do you keep your read and TBR pile together/on the same bookshelf or not?

I do because the way I organize my shelf is to keep authors together and to keep hardcovers together so in order to do so it gets kind of messy. But messy in a good way that works for me.

Do you plan to read all the books you own?

I wish I could say yes but as of right now there are just some books that I don’t think I’ll ever get to or ever really want to.

What do you do with books that you own and that you’ll feel you’ll never read/enjoy?

I either sell them to a local used bookstore or I donate them to the library for the used book sales that they have fairly often.

Have you ever donated books?

Yes, I’ve donated a crap ton of books. To be honest, it makes me feel a little better when I buy books because I know that I’ll actually have room for them.

Do you feel like you buy too many books?

Hmm that’s actually a pretty hard question because sometimes I do but then other times I won’t buy a book for three weeks and I can step back to say that I don’t buy that many. In the grand scheme of things I probably do buy a decent amount more than I should.
