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 tend to borrow the book I'm interested in from the library first, read it, and if I like it enough to add to my collection (and if I have money!), I tend to order it from Amazon or go to a local bookstore to pick up a copy! Of course that's an investment of time and space so I have to make sure I'm gonna reread it at least once before I spend money on it! I wish I could have a huge library a la Beauty and the Beast, but alas, all I have is my bookshelf in my room so I have to be a little more selective!

What about you? Buy or borrow?

On any given day, I have between 5 and 10 books on my nightstand which remain about a week. I'd love to say I've purchased them all, but the reality is, most of my books are borrowed from the library. I do purchase books sometimes, but unless they're reference works, I usually give them away.

I agree -- I would like a library like the Beast has. But, we have a room in our house that's a dedicated library, so I'm pretty happy. I get most of mine from the library, but I admit to sometimes picking things up at my local indie store.

Thanks to i'm loving books!


I receive review copies of books from publicists, authors and publishers for an honest review. I do not receive monetary or other compensations for posting reviews.
