Book Blogger Hop - July 15 to 18

Time for the Hop again, hosted by Crazy for Books.

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question:

How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

Heh. Where do I not get my books? Many of them I borrow at the public library. The library also has a Friends of the Library bookstore that sells high quality paperbacks cheaply. There are several good used bookstores around town, though not as many as there once were, unfortunately. I'll pick up a few every so often at Barnes & Noble or Hastings. I go online to Amazon and order things that aren't in stock locally, and I buy Nookbooks online, too. Then, too, people often give me books. My mother gave me about six boxes a couple of weeks ago, for example.

My mom also gives me books. Usually very strange older stuff. Happy Friday!

I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer –
