TGIF at GReads- This Feature is for Fridays to re-cap the week's post & to answer a question from GReads.
Question: Buy or Borrow: Where do your books that you read come from? The bookstore? The library? Do you prefer to own a book, or have it on loan?
I have to buy my books. I don't use a library because I don't like giving books back. The library would end up banning me haha. I sometimes will borrow from a friend who is telling me I need to read a book but then most of the time I end up buying it anyways. I used to buy from Borders all the time because I worked there. I had a pretty awesome discount but now they are gone :(. Now I buy most of my books from Bull Moose Music which is a local chain in Maine. They began carrying books this past year and expanded the store for them. Awesome! I already had loved to shop there for movies and music because they always had good prices. They sell Used product so most of the time I could get what i wanted even cheaper. They do the same with the books. They sell new books as well which are always 35% publishers price. Awesome! I love great deals on books! It I also a great store and everyone is always very nice when I go in. A lot of them no me personally from going in there so much. If you live in Maine check it out! You can also order from their website.
When I get e-books I get them from Barnes and Noble. I have a nook and I love it, still love real books more but when I have e-books to read I love my nook. I have the older white e-ink model. I probably won't upgrade until it dies because It works great and does what I want it to do.
