50/50 Friday is a meme hosted by Carrie @The Butterfly Reads
and I and focuses on the opposite sides of books (best/worst, differing opinions, etc). Every week will have a new topic and several advance topics will be listed in the tab labeled 50/50 Friday!
I AM GETTING BACK ON TRACK FINALLY! (can you hear the conviction in the all caps?)
Today’s Topic: Place You Buy the Most/Least Books
I actually don’t buy a whole lot of books but the ones I do are hardcovers I order from Amazon. I have Amazon Prime so everything is free 2 day shipping which makes my bookworm heart happy. And, once in a blue moon, I’ll preorder a book (looking at you, ACOWAR) and it’ll come from Amazon. I really wish I could support more independent bookstores but there’s like one in the city I live in and it’s pretty far away which doesn’t help me out much.
Like I mentioned above, I really don’t have any independent bookstores near me so I almost never buy a book from one. If I’m traveling and I come across one, I may buy a book but that’s about it. I just don’t buy many books, as crazy as that sounds! A close second for me is Netgalley as well, actually. I’m pretty sure I have a profile but I never use it. I keep meaning to but I keep accepting review requests from authors and publishers who contact me directly. I should really get on that!
So there you have it! Where do you buy/get the most/least books? Do we share any? Do you have many independent bookstores near you? Make a post and link up down below!
