How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?
Haha, my books come from everywhere! I’m a sucker for buying books, I do it much more than I should. I’m better than I used to be, but I love the feeling of opening a box from Amazon full of shiny new books or carrying a Waterstones bag home on the bus. It genuinely makes me day. It used to be that I’d buy a book every time I walked past a shop, but I’ve gotten better at comandeering them from other sources.
I discovered the library only a few weeks ago. Or rediscovered, I should say. I used to go all the time when I was younger (there was a life-sized train in the children’s section) but then my local library replaced a lot of bookshelves with computers and it wasn’t really worth going anymore. Then I moved to Sheffield four years ago, and its only just occured to me to start going there, which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It’s shut for refurbishment now though, which figures.
Readitswapit’s useful for swapping books too. My available book list is here so feel free to take a quick look. I stopped using it for a while because I left my books-to-swap pile at home when I went away to University. I’ve had a clear out now though so I’m part-way through adding loads of books to it. Hopefully I’ll be requesting a few swaps when I’m done!
