I'm Back! Book Blogger Hop

After a month-long hiatus, I'm back with another post. What better way to return than Book Blogger Hop? This weekly meme is hosted by Crazy for Books, so be sure to check her out.

This past month has been filled with moving to a new home, busy days at work, and grad school midterms. I can't wait to get you guys all caught up with what books I've been enjoying. Keep an eye out for those posts during the week. Now on to the hop:
Book Blogger Hop

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?

When I was younger, I got books from libraries, whether it was the school's, the county's, or a friend's personal collection. Recently, I've been buying my books a lot. I know I should take advantage of the library more, but the experience of owning my books is quite new to me. I buy my books at Barnes & Noble, used bookstores, garage sales, libraries sale, etc. If I can wait to read a book, I like to order it from Barnes & Noble online. I get free shipping with my membership and I save a lot on the books themselves.

I also have a Kindle, so I buy eBooks a lot. It really depends on the cheapest form that I can get my hands on.

Where do you find your reads?

Love and (a book) light,



  1. Glad to see I'm not the only hopper MIA for a bit! Nice to meet you, Dorothy.

    Owning books has always been wondrous for me. Books have always been my best friends.

  2. 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 –

  3. Congrats on the new home!

    I get books any way I can, but the library is definitely my default method. Yet, there is something about buying a book that just makes it a little more special to read...

    Great post!

  4. Welcome back, moving is such hard work so I hope you get some time to relax and enjoy the new home soon.

  5. I try to go for the cheapest way to get books too, there are so many interesting ones I'd go broke if I bought them all at full price!

  6. Garage sales are a great idea too. I'd love to get out there on the weekend more and source out some great finds.

  7. New follower stopping by....
