This or That? #38

This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know (and I would like to know as well)

Where do you get most of your books from?

Physical bookstores – Online – Secondhand book sales – Gifts – Book subscription boxes

(Can only give one answer!)

These days I buy a lot of my books online. I like to read the reviews of the book, all good and bad and then head online and buy them. I always feel so guilty though about it, because in my town, we don’t have the best economy in the world and over the last few years, we have had SO many book stores just close down. It is one of my goals though, this year, too actually get out and buy from actual bookstores…It would save a lot on shipping and postage!

I would love to know as well though where you all get your books from. See the different options out there.

  1. There’s been such a push for buying at independent book stores lately it seems—and you know what I’ve learnt since working in publishing? That good publishing houses have really good relations with book sellers and book stores. They talk to them personally and send them books that they are keen to be read. It’s way more than the retail job I assumed it would be! Book sellers know their shit!!
