Book Buying Tag!

17 Feb

This tag was created by this lovely youtuber, and it looked like fun, so I’ma do it.

1-Where do you buy your books from?
Mostly amazon and Barnes and Noble. I used to be a Borders lover though. My membership card is still in my wallet AND IT’S NEVER LEAVING!!! D:

2-Do you ever pre orders book and if so do you do this in store or online?
I’ve only ever pre-ordered a book one time, and that was on bn’s website. That was The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku. And I did this solely for the reason that they were offering signed copies with a pre-order, and my boyfriend fangirls for Michio Kaku. I couldn’t not surprise him with a copy. (and I got myself a copy, too :”D)

3-On average, how many books do you buy a month?
It depends on how much money I have. Since the new year, I’ve bought three books. I can go months without buying any, or I can buy 10 at once (damn you bookoutlet and your addicting ways)

4-Do you use your local library?
I used to. I did it a lot when I was in high school and didn’t have a job (let’s ignore the fact that I have no job right now either, shh). I suppose I should do it again considering monies.

5-If so- how my books can you/do you borrow at a time?
Two, probably. I don’t read very fast.

6-What is your opinion on library books?
I like them! They’re worn and loved. I don’t love finding gooey things in them, however. That happens every so often.

7-How do you feel about charity shop/second hand books?
Fine with me, as long as the cover is still on and there’s nothing sticky in/on them. More books for my monies!

8-Do you keep your read and TBR pile together/on the same book shelf or not?
At the moment, my TBR shelf a rainbow. Basically almost all the books I have with me at my apartment are on my tbr, aside from the pile I’ve completed since moving here. My already read books are still in my old bedroom-now-storage-room at my parents’.

9-Do you plan to read all of the books that you own?
I sure hope so. If I end up deciding I don’t want to, I’ll be mad at myself for spending the money on it in the first place.

10-What do you do with books you that you own that you feel you will never read/felt you did not enjoy?
Donate them to the library or try to sell them at the flea market if my mother happens to be going that week.

11-Have you ever donated books?
To friends, yes. To a donation place, no. I haven’t found any I hate as much as to donate them yet. Library is first on the list.

12-Have you ever been on a book buying ban?
I kind of am right now – read five, buy one.

13-Do you feel that you buy too many books?
Yes, but it’s due to mostly my money situation, not the ‘buhh too many books to read’ reason. There are better things I could spend my money on (like bills or gasoline or food or school supplies or taxes or other bills or school loans, etc)

    Okayyyyy, since Emmy tagged me in this post I guess I’m obligated to do this book tag thingy. AND because I have nowhere to post it, since I have yet to create a blog even though SOMEONE keeps bugging me to do so, I shall post it here! 😀

    Book Buying Tag!

    1-Where do you buy your books from?
    Like Emily, I also used to favor Borders instead of B&N, but now-a-days I mostly buy my books from Bookman’s or Half Price Bookstore (local used book shops). If I have a gift card or I want to buy a new book though, I do go to Barnes & Nobles. My friends did buy me a NOOK over a year ago, but so far I’ve only bought one book on it.

    2-Do you ever pre orders book and if so do you do this in store or online?
    I’ve actually never pre-ordered a book before. Most of the time I’m cheap and wait for new books to come out on paperback.

    3-On average, how many books do you buy a month?
    Hmmm, not many. Unless you count comic books. My friends and I go to a comic shop usually once a week, although I don’t buy them every week, and it’s right by a Bookman’s so I always browse while I’m there. But I have a specific book list on my phone at the moment so I only look for those specific books. I actually just went to a GIANT book sale and was a bit sad since I only bought three. But if I didn’t keep only to my book list I most likely would have bought a ton more. So my wallet is happy that I spent less than $5 on only three books. (Are you happy wallet? ARE YOU HAPPY? *tears*)

    4-Do you use your local library?
    HELL YES I DO! The library is my favorite place. Unlike some of my friends, I don’t feel the need to own tons of books because honestly I’m probably never going to read them more than once unless it’s part of the few favorite series I have. Then I must own them, of course. And when I got my NOOK and found out I was able to borrow electronic books? I WAS SO FRIGGIN’ HAPPY! Fo realz, yo. I was absolutely ecstatic. I usually only buy books that I cannot find at the library, unless they are from my favorite series.

    5-If so- how my books can you/do you borrow at a time?
    I think the library limit is ten per person. Possibly eight. I can’t remember. But depending on how long the series is and how popular, I usually try to get all the books in the series at once then just keep renewing them after. Because I’ve had experiences where I wait till the last minute to put a book on hold and have to wait FOREVER for it to arrive at my library. So sad…

    6-What is your opinion on library books?
    They are free so of course I enjoy them! But like Emmy said, I prefer ones without questionable substances inside. Eww…

    7-How do you feel about charity shop/second hand books?
    As mentioned earlier, that’s where I buy most of my books from so I love them! I’m super cheap, if you haven’t noticed. But I am somewhat picky. If the book is tooooo beat up, then I’ll wait untill they have a different copy. But most of the time I don’t care too much because after a certain amount of books I’ve read pile up I try to sell them back and/or donate them.

    8-Do you keep your read and TBR pile together/on the same book shelf or not?
    No, though it doesn’t really matter to me. My favorite series are on my top shelf and everything else I have is just kind of shoved where I can fit them. Although since my sister moved out and left her bookshelf behind I have been sticking my already read books there. Only if I plan on selling them though. Otherwise they remain on my shelf.

    9-Do you plan to read all of the books that you own?
    Of course! Otherwise I wouldn’t buy them. It’s just the matter of WHEN I read them that’s questionable…

    10-What do you do with books you that you own that you feel you will never read/felt you did not enjoy?
    I sell them or donate them. But I do that even with books I do enjoy. I only like to hold on to select series that I have really fallen for. I enjoy a lot of books but don’t feel the need to hold on to them since I have so much more I want to read.

    11-Have you ever donated books?
    Yes, the ones that don’t sell I donate to the library or the bookstores will donate them for me.

    12-Have you ever been on a book buying ban?
    No. Although I probably should have been. Since I go to Bookman’s so often I was buying a lot of books for awhile, but I’ve slowed down a lot, telling myself I need to read a good chunk of what I own before buying too many more. It’s just a bit difficult because currently I’m trying to only read completed series.

    13-Do you feel that you buy too many books?
    Yes, but unlike Emily, my reason is the ‘buhh too many books to read’ reason. But because I use the library so much it definitely keeps me from buying EVERYTHING I see.

    AND I’M DONE! WHOO! Thanks for tagging me, Emmy. It was actually fun to do. Still don’t know about creating a blog though. So lazy…
