I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

T.G.I.F (24)


TGIF is a fun little feature hosted by Ginger @ GReads! Every week we re-cap what has happened on the blog plus Ginger asks a question for us to answer. This week’ question is: 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?


As always Ginger asked a very good question.

I get books from the library and different bookstores. Honestly I get my books from wherever I can.

I love books, I only have books in my house that I will read again, if makes no sense for me to spend money on something that I will use one time and forget about. I’m always in the bookstores.

Now the library. I do go to library, more than anyone I know. If I see a book by someone I’ve never read before or a book that sounds good but I don’t really know if I want it, I’ll get it from the library. Also If I have a book series in paperback and the newest book comes out in hardcover I will borrow it from the library then buy the paperback when it comes out, so it can match my set.

  1. That's awesome that you use your library so much. I'm, unfortunately, really lazy and I would be awful with loan periods. Alas...

    Happy Friday!

  2. Hi, and Happy Friday!! I think you've got a great plan there! Borrow a book to see if you like it, then buy it if you do. I wish I could be more organized about such things!

    This is a very interesting answer! Thanks for sharing! : )

  5. I really should use my library more. I'm slowly learning to wean myself off buying books and instead, learning how to borrow them. It saves me money!
