Thanks to GReads! for hosting! And TGIF!


This week’s 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 love buying books. I love the feel of them, owning them to read and re-read at my leisure. I love the look of them displayed in bookcases. I buy from booksellers online, from major retailers, from used bookstores, everywhere!

But I also love to use the library.

My local library is amazing. It has a wonderful selection. I can borrow, read and give back without the clutter or the cost! And best of all, if I really love the book, I’ll buy it anyway!


And of course, I have to mention my fellow book buying/borrowing junkie A from RNSL. I borrow books from her all the time!

The below is a small sample I have borrowed from friends or the library, but loved them so much, I bought my own copy!

´╗┐So really, I guess I’ll buy and borrow books from just about anywhere and anyone.
What about you?
