The Book Buying Tag

Recently while watching Youtube vlogs I stumbled upon this fun tag and I thought I would take part.

I am inviting all my readers to take part. If you take part please let me know in the comments below so that I can go and check all your responses.


1. Where do you buy your books from? 

– I normally buy my books at Chapters.

2. Do you ever pre-order books and if so do you do this in-store or online?
– No I have never pre-ordered any books. I know isn’t that strange for a book blogger not to do?

3. On average, how many books do you buy a month?
-It all depends whats in the Scholastic book club form. It can be anywhere from no books to twenty books a month from the Scholastic forms. I haven’t really bought much from the bookstores.

4. Do you used your local library?

-We tend to use the local library more in the summer time because Michael takes part in the summer reading activities and its easier to get the books back their on time then during the school year. 

5. If so, how my books can you/do you borrow at a time?
-Our cards have a 50 book limit so you can borrow within that limit and we have three library cards so thats like a 150 book limit. The only time we ever used that was when our library was getting renovated and we maxed out all three cards. During the summer I think we always take out books/magazines/games/cds/videos/video games on each visit.

6. What is your opinion on library books? 
– I am really happy with our library because they always have the newest books and magazines. They are always in great shape and we have awesome library events throughout the year. 

7. How do you feel about charity shop/second hand books?
-I love going into second hand bookstores because sometimes you can find great books and great prices. 

8. Do you keep your read and TBR pile together/on the same book shelf? 
– My whole bookcases are TBR piles. 

9. Do you plan to read all of the books that you own? 
– I would love to read all the books I own but realistically its probably not going to happen. To many books to read.

10. What do you do with books you that you own that you feel you will never read/felt you did not enjoy?
– The books that I feel that I will never read or felt like I would enjoy are passed on to friends, church or donation boxes.

11. Have you ever donated books?
-Yes I donate books all the time.

12. Have you ever been on a book buying ban? 
– Yes I have been on a book buying ban.

13. Do you feel that you buy too many books?

Honestly yes I feel as though I buy too many books. I have to blame the Scholastic book club forms that my son comes home with. I know I don’t buy as much as I use to from Chapters since switching to the plums reward card. With the plum card I have to pay full price for the books and I no longer get discounts like I did with the iRewards card so that has really helped my book buying. 

So those are my answers looking forward to seeing and reading yours
