Duxxy posted this in another thread, but she wanted to know the main source of everyone's reading materials. I thought it was a great question, and I'm curious too.
Duxxy's original post:
"What is the main source of your reading materials?
Do you buy brand new?
Do you buy used?
Do you wait forever on the library's To Lend list?
I'm finding my reading habit to be almost as bad as a smoking habit must be!! At $12 a book and I can read 2 a week, it adds up!
I have started buying used (I hate the smell) and trading with friends - although no one seems to share my taste in novels" - Duxxy
FORTer's, how do you get your books?
How attached are you to your books? (i.e. Do you read them and then rid yourself of the books, or do you find them too hard to let go of, and end up hoarding them like precious antiques? When you loan them, is it annoying when you don't get them back right away? Or do you read it and lose interest, and release it and give it away easily?)
Do you borrow books from friends?
Do you loan books to friends?
How large is your collection? How many shelves are you currently weighin' down?
