This or That? #83

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…..

Where do you get most of your books from?

Physical bookstores – Online – Secondhand book sales – Gifts – Book subscription boxes

(Can only give one answer!)

If you have another option I may or may not accept it depending on what it is. (You all know how this goes lol)

For me, it’s definitely secondhand book sales. Why pay $10-$15 when I can pay $2 AND it’s in really good condition, I’m talking practically new!

The way I see it, the cheaper the books are, the more I can buy. Who passes up on MORE BOOKS? I mean really people. My parents are starting to complain about how many I have. All those times that I said I was building a personal library……I was being serious!

What about you? Where do you get your books from (ones that you own)? Let me know!

    Mine is online, though I should visit more charity shops for even better bargains! I say a little bit more about it here


  3. Second-hand bookstores.

    Physical bookstores like Barnes & Noble are intellectually vacuous to me – they are more interested in selling “popular” books than having good books on the shelves.

    Online, but often lower-cost sites or Amazon sellers who offer the books at a lower cost. As long as they rate the book’s quality as “new/very good/good” & don’t note any writing in it, I’m golden. 😀

  5. Ah, this is a tough one. I’m an equal opportunity purveyor of books. I love a good second-hand bookshop and enjoy shopping for books online because I often find better deals on new books. But I have to say I have rather enjoyed shopping my local library’s used summer and fall book sale. The last time I was there I got 12 books for $25.

    So, I guess second-hand books is my final answer.
