Blog Hop Lovin'

It's that time of the week for a little bloggy blog lovin' with...
Book Blogger Hop
Hosted by Jen

Every week there's a new question, and it's a great way to get to meet new bloggers!

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?
 
Wow ok where do I get my books? How about where I DON'T get books! lolz
I get books from the library a lot because my library is walking distance from my house. I also get books from my local indie.
although my local indie isn't all that close to me, but when I find myself in the neighboorhood I alwasy feel like I ned to buy a book and contribute;)
But I also get tons of books for reviews, and those come from all over the place, in just about every format! I do have to say that my favorite way to get books is the ones that just magically appear on my doorstep....I lovers those kinds of suprises!
Now suprises like puppy presents on my carpet?
Yeah those...not so much *scrunches nose*

  4. I mainly get all my books from my library... but not just from MY library... from the 39 public libraries in the Jefferson County (b'ham) system. Yoda praise the book mobile!!

    I love it!

    I also get books sent to me from my friends (Darkfallen has sent me a book and my friend Leila has sent me several)

    I get free books online from Kobo and stuff.

    I like to go to the uber giant used bookstore (that used to be a Goody's) called 2nd and Charles and sometimes get books there.

    And of course there is Amazon. Used and NEW

    Walmart.com but I don't buy the books at the store because they are always more expensive than online.

    I'm not cool or hip and I guess I don't live in a trendy area but we don't have an INDIE bookstore that I know of. And because of these hard economic times (like how I threw that in) I have to go for price (ok.. I'm cheap) and that's how I decide where I'm going to buy my books.

    But I think I mainly get most of my books from the library. Loves it loves it loves it!

  9. 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 – http://www.howardsherman.net
