Book Buying Habits Tag.

Hello everyone!!! I’m back today with the Book Buying Habits Tag, this looks super fun and I’ve seen it around for quite a while and thought I’d give it a go. . .

Where do you buy your books from?

I try to buy from Waterstones as much as I can, as well as from Amazon. I’m trying to buy less form Amazon because I knew that it docent have a greatttttt relationship with authors. I’m trying to also buy more from Book Depository.

Do you ever pre-order books and if so, do you do this in-store or online?

I preordered ACOWAR but still didn’t get it for about a week after it was published. I preordered it in store, which was like,,, the best experience!

On average, how many books do you buy a month?

I normally buy like 2-3 month but then sometimes I’ll buy something like 5-6 which will last me a few months!

Do you use your local library?

No!!! I love to collect books, though I’ve used it before a few times.

If so, how many do you borrow at a time?

When I used it before I think I only got two or three out at a time because I can only take them out for two weeks so I didn’t want them to be over-due and they were super short.

What’s your opinion on library books?

I think that they’re super great and I will go there sometimes. However, most of the time the library doesn’t have the books that I want to read :/

How do you feel about charity shop/second hand books?

I really like charity shops because it gives to charity which is a super great thing and second hand books for classics because I think that it makes them look so aesthetically pleasing. Also,,, I got my Harry Potter books in hardback from the charity shop because I couldn’t find them anywhere.

Do you keep your read and TBR pile together/on the same bookshelf or not?

ermmmm not really? I sort of put them where they fit in / look pretty. Sometimes I keep them all together in a stack, sometimes I don’t, it just depends!

Do you plan to read all the books you own?

Yes! I have a few and I’m planning to read them super soon!

What do you do with books that you own and that you’ll feel you’ll never read/enjoy?

erM I don’t know to be honest, I like to give every book a chance, and to be honest, I tend to enjoy most of the books that I read. If I ever don’t like a book, I’ll either give it to a friend, second hand book store, or charity shop.

Have you ever donated books?

Yes! I donated all the books that I read when I was younger to charity.

Do you feel like you buy too many books?



So that’s it from me!!

See you next post and have an amazing rest of the weekend,

  1. Lovely post! OMG I wish I could just buy 2-3 books a month as opposed to the mass of like 12 I tend to buy every weekend you can only imagine how many books fill my flat at this moment haha.
    Likewise, I’m not much of a library user, if anything I just go their for the comfy chairs. I love collecting books and adding pretty new covers to my collection so book buying is something I definitely need more self control in.
    Great tag Lu, I look forward to more posts from you in the future… Happy Reading! 😀

    1. Thank you so much! OMG, recently (probably because it’s summer), Im buying wayyyy more books and my selves are getting so crammed!

      Same here with the library really, I go sometimes and I never end up finding the books that I want to read, or they’re always on loan because they’re really popular!

      Thanks for stopping by 😀
