For anyone who needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here!
By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!
This week I want to know…
Do you buy most of your books brand new or used?
Most of mine are used.
If I buy brand new books I get them from Barnes and Noble or Amazon. But, I could spend $16 there on just one book and get 4 books for that same amount elsewhere.
In the past year, I have gotten the majority of my books from Thriftbooks.com (most books are $4 and free shipping in the U.S.), a booksale at a local library (paperback $1.50/ hard cover $2), or books shops where they get most books by donation (most are sold for half off).
Even though they’ve been used they’ve all been in great condition which is pretty important in my opinion.
What about you? Where do you get your books from? Are they new or used? Let me know!
