Day 6: Describe how you shop for books
Oh. Oh well. I’m terrible. I have an addiction to shopping for books, so I shop for books all over the place. I shop for them at Barnes and Noble, used bookstores, Target, Amazon, on my Kindle. I am always shopping for books. I support the economy and sales of books in every form possible.
Honestly, before, I used to just walk into a bookstore and STARE at the young adult section for a super long time. I judge books by covers definitely and I would buy books based on that. That’s how I discovered City of Bones. The cover was beautiful and it jumped out at me, and look where that got me.
Now, ever since I joined the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army and started this blog, I am surrounded by more readers than I ever have before. Which means I have a ton of people recommending books to me every single day. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Then I discovered GoodReads, which got me into a lot of trouble, and my “to-read” list has grown so much.
So my general thing to do now, whether I’m buying it in a bookstore or on my Kindle, I go to my “to-read” list and I see what is on my list that I really want, and is decently priced and there you go, I buy it. Super boring. I buy books all the time, so there’s no real routine to it. I just buy everything.
