I always love blog tags, so I was so excited when I saw this one over on Stephen Writes. I really couldn’t resist participating in this one. I’m such a bookaholic so these answers were a lot of fun to come up with!
1. What do you like about buying new books?
The feel, the smell, the happy release of serotonin…I love everything about buying new books. It’s always exciting to carry a new world in the palm of your hand.
2. How often do you buy new books?
Daily, if we’re talking eBooks but maybe once or twice a month if we’re talking physical books.
3. Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?
Hands down bookstores. If I’m buying a physical book, I always try to go to my local indie or local B&N. If I’m buying online, it’s usually to get an autographed book, so typically, it’s at the author’s local indie or B&N.com.
4. Do you have a favorite bookshop?
Yep! I love Tattered Cover. The booksellers are some of my favorite people ever. Tattered Cover also has some of the best author events, and their stores have an awesome vibe to it. Psst. They even have a romance section.
5. Do you pre-order books?
This is a long, complicated answer. (Sorry!)
Yes, I do, but this year I’m not. Most of my one-click must have authors that I ALWAYS pre-order are Macmillian authors. That means that Kit Rocha, David Wong, and various other authors are not getting pre-ordered. It makes my heart hurt to not pre-order their stuff, but unfortunately, Macmillian has forced my hand.
6. Do you have a monthly buying limit?
Not really. I tried to give myself a book budget a few years ago and failed at it.
7. How big is your wish list?
This is going to sound bad, but if I have a book on my wishlist, it’s usually purchased or waiting for me to buy it when I have time to read it.
8. Which three books from your wish list do you wish to own right now?
See answer 7. I am incredibly fortunate to be able to spend $20-30 a month on books if I want. If I find a book I’m desperate for, I usually buy the audiobook on Libro.fm or Audible and listen to it.
I am tagging anyone that wants to participate! Yep, even you!
