Today is my Friday, because I get to have tomorrow (actually Friday) off work. Super stoked about that! I decided to request it off because it’s my mom’s birthday and we have family from out of state visiting. On Saturday we’re having a birthday party for her, which will be cool! 😀 Anyway, I was tagged by Avery from Red Rocket Panda to do the Anonymous Bookaholics tag. You should go check out Avery’s blog! 🙂
What do you like about buying new books?
I love the look and feel of books. Especially if they have bright colorful artwork on the cover or pretty fonts. I also love having my bookshelves all set up with so many books on it. It’s actually killing me right now that I currently do not have any bookshelves and that all my books are packed away. I miss being able to stare at them and admire them, lol. Hopefully soon this changes! But honestly, I just LOVE books, reading them, collecting them, everything! GIVE ME ALL THE BOOKS!!!!
How often do you buy new books?
I don’t buy books too often these days, because I already have so many that I need to read and I am also trying to save money. I might buy a few a month or go months without buying. I used to buy TONS every single month though, but have since stopped.
Bookstore or online book shopping – Which do you prefer?
I love checking out different bookstores, but because I don’t have a ton of money I usually buy online. It’s cheaper online, sadly.
Do you have a favorite bookshop?
I don’t really have a favorite bookshop. There was a used bookshop here called Second Edition Book Shop and they had a cat named Catsby that lived there. I really liked going there and checking out all the books that they got in. Sadly the book shop closed down though. 😦
Do you pre-order books?
I do pre-order books. I usually only pre-order my auto-buy authors’ new books or a book that I absolutely cannot live without and need it on release day, lol. But mostly it’s just my auto-buy authors that I pre-order.
Do you have a monthly book buying limit?
No monthly limit, but I try not to spend a ton of money a month when I do buy books. So I guess I try to limit myself to $30-50 if I do happen to buy some books.
How big is your wishlist?
My Goodreads TBR is kind of crazy long right now of the books that I want to read that I don’t own, lol. I do have an Amazon wishlist of books though and it’s pretty decent sized. It’s 100+ books, LOL. UGHHH.
Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own NOW?
I just recently found out that there is now an illustrated edition of The Lightning Thief and I seriously need to own it like ASAP! That $25 price tag though has me hesitating, ughhhh! I love Rick Riordan so much though and I love Percy Jackson. I added it to my Christmas wishlist too, so we’ll see what happens. If not, I might have to breakdown and spend the money. I’ve also been eyeing Starry Eyes FOREVER! I also found out about Heretics Anonymous a few months ago and it sounds so good and I need it!
And anyone else that wants to do this tag! It was a lot of fun and I would love to see your answers. So feel free to link me to your posts if you decide to do it.
I hope you have a great day!
