I saw this tag done by Yna @ The Mood Reader and it looked like fun! Honestly, my parents must be happy I only got hooked on books as a teenager instead of something less fun 😛
(I’ve searched high and low for the original tag poster. If you know them, please let me know so I can give credits.)
1 – What do you like about buying new books?
I get such a thrill of endorphins! I’m especially happy to be putting money in the pockets of marginalized authors and to shift the needle for publishers to see that diverse books are profitable. Plus, having pretty books on my shelves is a bonus!
2 – How often do you buy new books?
Not actually that often. Mainly I will buy brand new versions of a book when I borrowed it from my library, utterly fell in love with it and would be willing to let others borrow it.
3 – Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?
Bookstores!! Walking into bookstores feeds my window shopping needs, too. But also there’s always interesting displays, and I’ve found books to add to my TBR simply because they were stacked so attractively.
4 – Do you have a favourite bookshop?
In Ottawa, there are Octopus Books and Books On Beechwood, which are great places.
5 – Do you pre-order books?
I will when I’m invested in a series or when it’s an auto-buy author.
6 – Do you have a monthly buying limit?
No; again, I don’t really buy enough books to need to budget. But I do keep my eye on those kinds of expenses because I frankly have more important places to put my finances and books are a luxury.
7 – How big is your wish list?
Too. Big. On the bright side, my friends will never run out of books to get me as presents!
8 – Which three books from your wish list do you wish to own right now?
I wouldn’t say these were my top three but they were the first three to come to mind. I’m currently reading an arc of CB (and loving it), I haven’t gotten my hands on THW (but I am highly anticipating it) and I really enjoyed Mr. Lemoncello’s!
