Anonymous Bookaholics Tag

I was tagged by Marta The Monogamist Reader. Marta has wonderful content, including a feature that lists the new YA releases of the week. It’s one of my favorites along with many of Marta’s reviews. Please check out her blog and follow if you haven’t already done so.

I’m not sure where the tag originated, but if you know, please let me know and I will update the post!

QUESTIONS

What do you like about buying new books?

I love the excitement of knowing that I will be on a new adventure soon. I enjoy holding it, the weight of it in my arms as I clutch it to my chest. Books are wonderful.

How often do you buy books?

I’ve been buying books more often than I used to because ebooks make it too easy to add something to my library. I purchase ebooks every few days when books I want are on sale. Print books are different matter. It depends from week to week if there is anything I want to have for my shelves.

Bookstore or online book shopping: Which do you prefer?

I want to say bookstore, but I’ve been I’ve been shopping online more often. Sometimes I want certain editions or I want to read it right away.

Do you have a favorite bookshop?

I’ve been trying to support more independent bookstores. I wish there was one in town, but there isn’t. I love Books of Wonder, because the books are wrapped in paper and then bubble wrapped when I receive them. It always feels like I’m opening a gift when a package from them comes in. I would also like to one day visit Waterstones.

Do you pre-order books?

I’ve fallen victim to pre-order incentives and like to pre-order books when I can. However, the incentives are just little extras. I’ll pre-order when it’s a book I can’t wait for. For instance, I’ve had Fonda Lee’s Jade Legacy and Andrea Stewart’s The Bone Shard Emperor preordered for a while now.

Do you have a monthly buying limit?

I really need to set one! The only thing that makes me feel a teensy bit less guilty is that I forgo buying certain other wants when I think about spending the money on books instead. Hahaha… Take out? Not tonight. I can use that for books instead.

How big is your wishlist?

My wishlist is technically my TBR and vice versa. It’s long and I should remove some. I’m sure I’ve forgotten half of the books on there!

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

I can’t wait for my print copy of The Bone Shard Emperor…and I’m already anticipating the last book in the trilogy. I’ve heard so many great things about An Ember in the Ashes. I have an ebook of An Ember in the Ashes but I really want a print copy. I also have an ebook of Attachment Theory (My Review), but I’ve been refreshing daily to see when the audiobook might be available. Loring has the best ensemble cast with her audiobooks.

I’m Tagging YOU.
If this is something you might enjoy doing, please do it and tag me. I’d love to read your answers!

This tag was fun but also made me reflect on my spending habits. Why must reality be forced on me? I am probably in need of a buying limit and likely have to curb my moods to minimize impulse buys. I do a lot of that!

  1. I love this tag. I like to go to bookstores and buy books, but I love being able to get a book immediately so I end up shopping for books online the most.
