QOTD #2: How often do you buy used books?
As often as possible. I just picked up 10 fro 5$ at a local flea market!
Very nice! I'm envious!
I did something similar at a garage sale a couple of months ago. The lady is a librarian and all of her books were first edition hardback fantasy books :)
I buy books once a month.
I'm bad.I buy NEW books once a week.Mind you, I bought an awful lot of books during Border's closing sales.It may actually be a while before I buy books again.
... a LONG while since I'm apparently not in a huge reading mood lately.
QOTD #3: What is your favorite location for reading?
How do people do that? I've tried but have had a hard time with the glare from the sun and the wind flipping my pages for me.
There's a technique ; ) Angel your chair so the wind it too your back. As for the glare I use sunglasses.
Oh! So the trick is to use your brain! I get it! :D
QOTD #4: Are you more apt to buy from a physical or online bookstore?
Since I got a kindle I do most of my :book"shopping electronically. They have so many free books for the kindle
A physical bookstore
I tend to prefer a physical bookstore BUT I do put stuff on my Reader. What I read on paper and what I read electronically are different. The E-books are either classics (public domain) or free books (stuff I've already read and liked, and stuff I'm not sure I want to read). By getting the free books, I've actually found some new favorites. It might only be 1 book out of 10 ... but I'm not out any money either.
I'm hoping to get a e-reader for my birthday or christmas. If I do get one I probably won't being books very much.
QOTD #5: What types of non-fiction literature do you like to read?
I like true crime and celebrity biographies
