TGIF and Week In Review (34)

Hosted by Ginger over at G-Reads, TGIF is a way to recap the week on your blog and answer a fun question she asks bloggers. Linking up spreads the word, so visit her blog for more info and to participate! :o) Here's the question for this week:

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?

I usually prefer to own, but I don't always like to buy. So I get a lot of my books from the library. I always have something on hold at one of my two libraries. I'm bad with returning on time, so I have to stay more organized. I also get a lot from Net Galley and S&S Galley Grab. Giveaways also provide me with some of my books. But the library is my usual haunt for books to read!

I'm bad with buying books because I have a nook and a Kindle, but I prefer the physical novel. I don't like to buy many ebooks. I'll get the free ones from Amazon, and maybe some of the $0.99 ones, but other than that, if I do buy I get the hardcover or the paperback.

This past week on the blog:

  • Top Ten Tuesday
  • Teaser Tuesday
  • Waiting on Wednesday

  1. I think S&S Galley Grab booted me off their list! I've tried emailing them but get no response! It's been months since I received a newsletter! I didn't do anything bad that I know of. Makes me really sad because I miss getting galleys!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. I can't help buying books. It's an addiction. I haven't even read more than half of the books I have bought because there just isn't enough time. I think having my nook has made my book buying even worse, though I still do love buying pretty physical copies too.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! It means a lot!! Happy Reading!!
