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?
