I'm a HUGE fan of the Library. Ever since I was little it has been my favorite place to be. I've really been blessed to have great local Libraries and Librarians. And because of this I've just always used the Library. I will gladly admit it: I am a Library addict. If there's a new book coming out, I put it on hold at the Library, if a book is already out, I'll put it on hold, and just about everything I read has a Library sticker on it. I'm one of those people who doesn't buy a book unless I've read it first and LOVED it. Either that or I just got it for a really, REALLY good deal. And even the books that I do buy and love, I have to get them on discount. I can't remember the last time I bought a book for full price and I just can't imagine doing it. I know, I'm such a cheapskate. :P
After starting my blog I've realized how truly unusual I am. I've noticed that a lot of other bloggers just buy all their books. They buy the new releases as soon as they come out, they buy an older book that catches their eye, they buy stuff people recommend, they buy tons, and tons of books and sometimes those same books will sit on a shelf and not get read for another 6 months. I know how that is. I've done it before too. :P
So which kind of reader are you? Do you like to borrow books? Buy the books? Or are you a little bit of both? And do you buy books at full price or do you buy them on discount?
