Anonymous Bookaholics Tag!

I came across this tag in a couple of places, and I think it looks like fun! I’d say i’m only recently suffering a bookaholic relapse after University, when I stopped buying books due to monetary and time-management issues. Now i’m out and running this blog, i’m quickly falling back into old patterns!

What do you like about buying new books?

I love the entire process. Roaming the bookstore, picking up new titles. It’s always torturous narrowing my choices down to a couple, but once I do I can never wait to get home. The touch of the cover, the crisp pages, the excitement of a new story. I love it!

How often do you buy new books?

Not as often as I’d like, because I’m broke, lol. I’m going shopping this afternoon though! After that I probably won’t buy any for a month or so.

Bookstore or online book shopping?

I like online because it’s cheaper, but for that to work I have to know in advance what I want to buy. My preference is to browse a bookshop without anything particular in mind.

Do you pre-order books?

I never have, but I definitely would if I wanted something so badly!

Do you have a monthly book buying limit?

I haven’t needed to set myself a limit yet, because whilst I was at University I never really bought any – I didn’t have the money. I still don’t have much so I just avoid going into bookshops as much as possible unless I’ve set a little money aside.

Book buying bans – are they something for you!

I wouldn’t particularly set a strict ban on myself, just decide not to visit any bookshops for a while! Same as the above, really.

How big is your wishlist?

Not particularly big! I save titles of books I see reviewed sometimes if I want to check them out, but that’s about it. I prefer to buy books on the day without any previous planning of what I want. It’s more exciting to me.

Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own now?

  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, of course! I plan to buy this book today.
  • The Widow by Fiona Barton is also high on my list, I think it looks incredible.
  • B A Paris – Behind Closed Doors is the final!


What do you guys think? What would your answers be?

  1. I have to agree that my wishlist fluctuates often, but normally I find myself wanting to buy more books than I really can afford to. (I’d really be homeless, and in debt if I bought all the books I wanted) So I always make myself check the library first. It’s very hard! I have to agree though, that I normally don’t buy books until I’ve read, and decided that I really love the book.
