The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag

I can’t remember the last time I did a tag, so I’m super excited to have a fun one to share with you. Cristina from My Tiny Obsessions tagged me for The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag. Thanks, Cristina!


WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT BUYING NEW BOOKS?

The rush I get when I buy a physical copy of a book is a little insane. I do it so rarely that it’s so much fun. I really try to limit myself on buying books, though. If I start to overflow my bookcase, my husband starts to complain.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU BUY NEW BOOKS?

Honestly, I try not to purchase books too often. I always check the e-book and regular library first. NetGalley is a savior, too.

BOOKSTORE OR ONLINE BOOK SHOPPING – WHICH DO YOU PREFER?

If I’m going to buy a physical copy, it’s more fun to get it from the bookstore. I usually end up ordering them from Amazon due to the cheaper prices, though.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE BOOKSHOP?

20150621_093202[1]

YES! My absolute favorite bookstore is Powell’s City of Books in Portland, Oregon. I’ve been there three times and each time was completely overwhelming. So many floors of books.

DO YOU PRE-ORDER BOOKS?

Only if it’s one of my favorite authors.

DO YOU HAVE A MONTHLY BOOK BUYING LIMIT?

My husband would say yes, that it’s zero books. Lol. But no, I don’t. I just try not to buy so many that he’ll notice all of the Kindle charges on the credit card bill.

BOOK BUYING BANS – ARE THEY SOMETHING FOR YOU?

Not really. I just do my best not to buy books unless I have to (ie: new favorite author release or binge reading a series when the library doesn’t have them).

HOW BIG IS YOUR WISHLIST?

I don’t think I can answer that. My TBR expands daily.

WHICH THREE BOOKS FROM YOUR WISHLIST DO YOU WISH TO OWN NOW?

I wish to own these three books because they’re not out yet! I need them! (Click on the book covers to be taken to their Goodreads pages.)

  1. City of Books looks overwhelmingly AMAZING. I would probably end up staying there the whole day is Oregan wasn’t so far from me. 😛 You definitely need to build yourself a secret cave where your husband won’t have any knowledge of all the amazing books you’d get! 😀

    • I wish I could have spent the whole day there. Luckily, I was able to go twice this summer since we went to Portland more than once. It’s about 3 hours for me, so I don’t get to do it often.
      I guess technically my Kindle is my book cave then! 😉
