I Love Free Books!

Book Blogger HopEvery week Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop. Participants answer a question and then visit other blogs of fellow participants. This week's question is:

"How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?"

My answer: I used to buy all my books.  Now, I'm much more frugal.  :)  I get a lot of my books from publishers who want their book reviewed.  I also download lots of the free ebooks that Amazon offers to Kindle users. I occasionally get books from the library. If I see a book that I really want, but can't get it from anywhere else, I will write down the title and author and ask for it for my birthday or Christmas.

What about you?


  1. I still buy all my books, unless I can get them free. I do tend to wait until they are at a reduced price or at least in paperback. That is unless it is a book that I have been waiting to be released. When no one knows what to get me for a present, they all know that a gift certificate to our local books store is always welcome. My daughter just got hired there, so something tells me I am now in serious trouble :)

  2. Thanks for the visit to my blog. My birthday is in December, so I add things to my wishlist during the year then get a nice selection of books as gifts for birthday and Xmas! ;)
