Another bookish tag that I wanted to try! I just saw this tag done by dancrossbookblog.
1. Where do you buy your books from?
I buy my books on: Amazon (Online), Thriftbooks (Online), National Book Store, Fullybooked, Facebook Groups (Online) and Book Outlet (Online).
2. Do you ever pre-order books and if so do you do this in store or online?
I haven’t done it yet.
3. On average, how many books do you buy a month?
Well, on average, 10-12 books and 80% of it are all in Hardcover!
4. Do you use your local library?
No. Actually, I don’t really know if our city has a public library. If it has one, I don’t even have some free time to visit it.
5. What is your opinion on library books?
I think it is very useful for people who don’t have money to buy their own books.
6. How do you feel about second hand books?
I love second hand books! Half of my collections are all second hand. Then, aside from it being used already, they are also very cheap. You’re lucky if you’ll find a copy that is almost like new.
7. Do you keep your TBR pile on your main bookshelves or no?
NO! Hahahaha! I kept them all together on my shelves or boxes. My TBR list for the month is just posted on my blog – on the sidebar. The whole TBR can be found in my Goodreads.
8. Do you plan to read all of the books you own?
Yes! I don’t buy books if I don’t have any plans of reading it! It just that, if the book I owned was part of a series and I don’t have the complete set, sometimes, I don’t read them yet.
9. What do you do with books you feel you will never read/did not enjoy?
I sell it online, use it as a giveaway prize, or sometimes if I’m being generous, I just give it to someone else who are interested to read it.
10. Have you ever donated books?
YEP! I already donated hundreds of books.
I’m a member of Rotaract club in my University and we usually have a project wherein we donate books to public schools in provinces.
I also had donated some of my unused copy on some organizations in the other universities/colleges.
11. Have you ever been on a book buying ban?
Yes, actually, I’m on a book buying ban right now and it started last month. I already have a lot of books right now that I haven’t read and I already ordered almost 30-40 books last April and I’m just waiting for it to be delivered to my house by my friend – who is currently on US – when she goes back here in PH.
12. Do you feel that you buy too many books?
No, There’s no such thing as too many books for me. I love having a lot of it.
