Odds & Ends: Anonymous Bookaholics Tag

I found this tag on Dinipandareads blog while trying to decide which tag to do this month. It sounded fun and easy – perfect for this hot lazy day lol. So let’s get started!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT BUYING NEW BOOKS?

What don’t I love?!? They’re pretty! The smell amazing! They have multiple words. They a place to escape and explore.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU BUY NEW BOOKS?

Oh no… umm often! I go into every month thinking I wont buy and books this month…… and then a shiny sale pops up and that idea goes right out the window!

BOOKSTORE OR ONLINE BOOK SHOPPING: WHICH DO YOU PREFER?

This is a tough one because honestly… both!

I love the experience of browsing the shelves and finding books that I wouldn’t necessarily find when looking online. I love online because…. well same answer as above – sales lol. I could go to Chapters and pay full price for a book OR I could go online and get a discounted price.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE BOOKSTORE?

I have lots of favourite bookstores lol.

I love Book Depository because I can get UK covers. I love Chapters|Indigo because I get new books at a discount (compared to Amazon). Honestly, I love going to Value Village and Bibles for Missions (both Thrift stores in Ontario) and seeing what I can discover.

DO YOU PRE-ORDER BOOKS?

Sometimes. I’m going to sound like a broken record, but if I’m dying for the book and there’s a pre-order sale then I will likely preorder. It is rare for me to pre-order a book without a sale though. I’m not usually fast enough in picking up my books to justify pre-ordering it – usually.

DO YOU HAVE A MONTHLY BUYING LIMIT?

No. I honestly have such respect for those who do and actually adhere to that! It’s something that I let myself have a little more play with.

HOW BIG IS YOUR WISHLIST?

Is it weird that I don’t have an official wishlist. My plan is to add them to the various places I buy books/audios so I can get notifications when they go on sale. But until then – official, maybe 10. Unofficially, thousands lol!

WHICH 3 BOOKS FROM YOUR WISHLIST DO YOU WISH TO OWN RIGHT NOW?

A Psalm of Storms and Silence by Roseanne A. Brown
A Pho Love Story by Loan Le
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
