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!
