There’s so many different ways to read books. You could go to a bookstore like Barnes and Noble’s, or Borders, you can borrow books from a library, browse through a used bookstore, or even buy e-books.
How do you get your books? Personally I like to go to the library, why buy something when you don’t know if you’ll like it? In the library you can also find books that bookstores no longer have in stock. Sure you can find them on-line, but then you can’t flip through the pages, which is my favorite part of looking for books. I love reading little passages, or just smelling the pages.
If I find a great book in the library that I know I’ll read again, sometimes I’ll go to a bookstore or find a used copy on-line. Then if I come across an amazing first book to a series from in the library, I’ll buy the rest as they come out. Which is why most books in my bookshelves are only parts of a series. I really only own two complete ones Twilight and Uglies. Of course when people look through my bookshelves for books to borrow it makes them so frustrated. Maybe I should start actually buying the first book in a series?
