Bookaholics Anonymous Tag


Since it’s currently 95 degrees outside with no chance of me not being covered in sweat, I decided it was time for another bookish tag. I found this one on Fantastic Book Dragon’s blog (you should check it out!) and had fun diving into more bookish questions. I’m not sure where this originated but if you know, please tag them!

What do you like about buying new books?

I love, love, love buying new books. The smell of a new book is my favorite. If they boxed that smell up and made it into a perfume I WOULD WEAR IT. I also love that they haven’t been opened or beaten up. It’s always special to get a brand new book, but I also love used books.

How often do you buy new books?

I used to buy them weekly, but since I put myself on a book budget I typically buy once every 2-3 weeks. I’m trying to utilize my local library more, and picking up books on my TBR rather than purchasing more. BUT if there’s a good sale going on (Hello, #BNBookHaul)  I may be persuaded to buy a bunch.

Bookstore or online book shopping – which do you prefer?

Definitely in store. Unless I already checked out the book in the store and found it cheaper online. I recently found out you could buy books from B&N online for the online price and pick it up in store, which changed my life.
Do you have a favourite bookshop?

My area has a few bookstores, but my favorite one downgraded their space and they only have 1/4 of the inventory they used to have. Super depressing. I don’t really have a favorite anymore. I always end up at Barnes and Noble.

Do you pre-order books?

I’ve actually only pre-ordered one book, and that was A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas. I prefer just picking them up the day they come out.

Do you have a monthly book buying limit?

Yes! I try to stay under $40 for books a month. Of course that doesn’t include my subscription box which ends up being around $38 with shipping. I’ve been super successful with this.

How big is your wishlist?
Ahhhhhh is that even a question!? I honestly don’t even know.

Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own NOW?
I want to purchase alllll the Game of Throne books.
I want to get Tower of Dawn so I can get closer to finishing before KOA comes out!
anddddddddddd City of Ghosts by VE Schwab! Oh, and Toil and Trouble.

I want to tag Destiny from Howling Libraries!

  1. I prefer buying my books in a store, but lately I’ve doing a lot of preordering through Amazon which has significantly cut down on me from overspending, haha! But I do like doing large book hauls once or twice a year from Book Outlet because their books are so cheap and I can haul over 10 hardbacks for around $50. Too good to pass up!

  2. Wow you’re so responsible with you buying books. I do not have a monthly buying limit and I should. I haven’t bought any books lately because I have so many but I got some as gifts. I want to try to get more on Book Outlet because they have such cheap prices but I also need new books that are not on Book Outlet although I love Barnes and Noble.
