Describe How You Shop for Books
I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but I totally do! If I haven't heard of the book, the only way I will buy it is if the cover catches my eye on the shelf. Other than that, I have to rely on recommendations from friends, bloggers, and goodreads. Since I'm not really big on buying books these days (lack of dollas...) if I'm going to buy one, it has to be one that has come highly recommended or is on my to-read shelf. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I get tricked into deals by B&N where I buy a random book to get another one "free" (see here) but if that's the case, then the cover is what caught me! I also really enjoy buying used classics. The older the better. I will get these from our local book dispensary and they are almost always classics I have read and loved. I'm currently on the look out for a used copy of Atlas Shrugged. I like the character of older books better and that is one that I would like to own! Alas, I don't buy a lot of books at the moment because I tend to read ebooks and absolutely refuse to buy an ebook. I love them but would not waste money on something I can't at least admire on my shelves!!!
