TGIF – 1/27/12

This Friday’s Question:

Buy or Borrow: Where do your books that you read come from? The bookstore? The library? Do you prefer to own a book, or have it on loan?

My sources for books are as eclectic as my reading choices!  I have always loved the library and that used to be my number one source for books.  Used bookstores/thrift shops and yard sales was my number two source!  I love a good book for free or on the cheap!  Since I started book blogging I’ve also been fortunate enough to win a few books during contests and to also have received a few books from authors/publishers for review which has added to my TBR.  And lastly…since buying my nook…I’ve been a free download queen…   (It’s my not-so-secret addiction!)

    I agree — thrift stores and used bookstores can be a great place to find books. I admit, I tend to get almost all of mine from the library. I should look for more free downloads, though — I don’t use my Nook unless I’m traveling, so I should give it more attention. 🙂

    Happy Friday!

  2. I love thrift stores for books. My town has a town-wide garage sale once a year and the library usually has great books on sale. I’ve missed it the past few years, but hope to check it out this year! And I love free books … of course, anything free is good!

  3. ah, nothing like free books! 🙂 I haven’t bought a book from my local bookshop in aaaaages. Ok, maybe not ages, but a few weeks. Got to love the ereader!
