Today, our host at Should Be Reading, has asked another question.
Where do you buy/get most of your books?
That’s a good one. I’ve been trying to keep better track of my reading activities this year, which is why I’ve created some documents to help me with that. I have one for Books Bought in 2010; and another one for Books Received from Vine/Authors, etc.
I bought 33 books this year, so far. I buy from Amazon and bookstores, but mostly Amazon. Just a click away, and all. Sigh….
I have 57 books received from Amazon Vine and publishers/authors.
Then, I still have 115 left on my original stacks, which date back a few years. When I started working on those, I had 166. Which was not the original number! Those I bought mostly in bookstores over a period of four or five years.
So I’m certainly glad I’m documenting what I’m doing this year, and even though I’m still buying, I’m pleased to report that it’s not as big an issue as it was.
I’ve also returned to library borrowing, but haven’t done that as much lately due to the numbers on my TBR.
What did you discover when answering this question today? I hope you’ll stop by and share some thoughts.
