Where do you guys find your books?
I’m guilty of finding posts on Tumblr of people gushing about books that they love and, upon following the links and researching the summaries of said books, have bought them on a whim, usually through Amazon. Rachel and I also tend to frequent Barnes and Noble and, every once in a while, we’ll get in a, “BUY ALL THE BOOKS!” mood. With a basket in one hand and a Frappuchino from the cafe in the other, we can go overboard sometimes, but there are definitely worse things we could be buying.
So I was curious if anyone had a favorite bookstore or website that they tend to find and buy books from. Or perhaps you’re more of a library person, where you can test out the books and see if they deserve a place on your bookshelf at home? Do you tend to buy in person (you know, after you’ve properly admired, touched, and smelled the book) or online (to be sure that the book has always been free from the grubby hands of others)?
No matter how you buy books, you know they are never a waste of money.
