It's time for Making Up For Monday!
This week's question: How often do you buy books and do you prefer new or used?
I don't necessarily have book buying routine. But I do prefer used books over new. There are two reasons for this:
1. Books are MUCH cheaper used. When you like to buy books as much as I do, spending $15-$25 each book can really start to add up. I have found several places to find used books: used book stores, library sales, yard sales, and online (try abebooks.com). This saves me TONS of money.
2. Used books always seem to have lived a life already. I feel like I am inherited a book that has already been read and loved before. I like continuing the life of the book by adding my name to the list of many that have read it before.
What about you?
