Making Up For Monday: Shopping

It's time for Making Up For Monday!

This week's question: How do you shop for books?  What's your favorite way to get a new book?

I love shopping for books in a shop.  I prefer it so much to buying books online.  I even bought a Nook and tried to start building my collection electronically, but after a month I gave the Nook to my husband.  I just can't seem to get into it. So physically going to a store and buying a book is the way for me.

My favorite store to buy books in his Portland, OR.  It's called Powell's and it's the largest independent bookstore. It's like an entire square block of pure heaven.

My second favorite place is the local library.  Here's a picture of my last haul, costing me only $37:

  1. I like shopping for books in a bookstore like Barnes & Noble but, instead of buying them there in the store at full price, I like making a list of what I want to buy and then buying them online later.

  3. Wow -- that's quite a haul! I've got too many ways of acquiring books to mention in a comment (my post is above). Here's my post.
