Hello! I’ve been a bit MIA lately, and haven’t been reading much because work has started back full swing! That being said, I do have some time to do a fun book tag (we all know I love a good tag)! Thank you to Books are 42 for tagging me – let’s get to it!
- What do you like about buying new books?
Everything! I love coming home and finding a spot for them on my shelf. I love admiring the covers and the art word. The thrill of having new books to read is fantastic (yes, the thrill). It’s even more exciting when I buy them from used book stores or thrift shops/flea markets!
2. How often do you buy new books?
Too often…I probably buy a new book (or more) once a week. I went months without giving books a thought, but now they’re all I want to buy; well books and book related merch. I’ve tried to put myself on a book buying ban, but that ended in 30 new books…so I won’t be doing that again!
3. Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?
I like going to bookstores and physically holding the books, browsing the aisles, and whatnot. Then, when I’m done, if there’s something I didn’t find, I’ll do online shopping. I can typically find books cheaper online that in person, even at used book stores. I just feel like online book shopping isn’t the same, but I do get very excited when the books come in the mail!
4. Do you have a favourite bookshop?
We have one really good used book store near us, and it’s called Ukazoo! I’ve been going to them for years. They have great prices, a big selection, and I can easily spend hours in there searching for books. I would love to go around and find more used book stores! I have a road trip to PA planned, there’s about five stores within minutes of each other…I just need the time to get to them!
5. Do you pre-order books?
I’ve always loved reading, but quarantine has really made me have a new appreciation (and obsession) with reading. This is the first time I’ve ever pre-ordered books. I have a VE Schwabb book pre-ordered and I pre-ordered ACOSF. I’m also into special edition things now and have a handful of them pre-ordered too…oops!
6. Do you have a monthly buying limit?
I should, but I don’t. I’d never stick to it, so what’s the point?
7. How big is your wishlist?
Fairly large. I have a lot of books that I want to read and a lot that I want to buy. I think I’d be poor if I bought them all.
8. Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own right now?
Good Girl, Bad Blood; Madhouse, and the Dusty books (I’ve read them but need the physical copies).
If you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged! I’d love to see everyone’s answers!
