or do you get them from the library????????

who still has a library card???

or do you read at all (for leisure)??????

i'm probably 60-40 - i buy 60% (i could literally spend a whole day browsing in the book store) and get 40% from the local library (i could literally get kicked out of a library in the time it takes me to take off my coat)

They books I by are not in the library Sad And, no they are not those kind of books. Most of them are martial arts books through Amazon.

Buy. I go to the bookstore at least once a week. Amazon just isn't the same as browsing.

buy 25%, library 75%

I like to peruse the non-fiction new books at the library. Other stuff I window-shop at amazon usually.

I do go to the library where Purple made the roof deck. Wink

I mostly buy books though. I want to have a big library someday, so I like to have them to keep.

I could spend all day in a bookstore too, and very often do spend entire afternoons there in comfy chairs.

Buy. Buy. Buy. rtpd113 has it right, Mr. Lambda and I consider going to the bookstore a hot date. Embarassed

The libraries around here are incredibly annoying. We have a library district with numerous branches. If you go to one library and look for books in the "catalog", the search function returns all the books in the district. Without fail, when I needed a book, it wasn't at my branch! Evil or Very Mad I do, however, have a library card.

I just keep the books I get at the library, it's cheaper that way.

Mr Poky and I love to buy books, however, I have cut way back
because there is no more room to put them all. Mr Poky is still buying. Evil or Very Mad

We could also kill several hours in the bookstore browsing and
drinking chai tea and cafe mochas.

I have a library card, but seldom go. Between Mr Poky's book buying
habits and a group of friends and family that all like to read and share
books I really don't need the library.
