Where do you buy or borrow your Books from ?
#1
I was wondering which stores are the most popular ? And if you borrow do you borrow from friends or the library ?

I personally belong to the library and borrow enough books so that I never am stuck for choice. I must say my favourite shop is Borders, (perhaps it is the lure of Starbucks) but for the most part I buy from Amazon - they just have the best prices and choice.

I tend to pop into the local charity shops when I can and see what's on the shelves, some have a great selection and usually between £1 - £2 Smile

Most books are recommended to me, and usually I cannot find them in our book stores here, so order them off Amazon. Second hand and out of print books I order from abebooks online.

Not a great library lover -

I tend to buy alot of mine online from Amazon then sell them after i have read them, otherwise i normally go on a spree like i did last week and got some form Ottakars and i also got some great holiday reads for my hubby from Tescos last week.
