Today’s Question: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
There’s no genre that I avoid at ALL costs, but I generally don’t read a lot of nonfiction. That said, I just remembered that I’m in LOVE with The Beak of the Finch, which is nonfiction. Haha, ah well. I like a little bit of everything!

Buy or Borrow: Where do your books that you read come from? The bookstore? The library? Do you prefer to own a book, or have it on loan?
I definitely prefer to own books (which is obvious when you see my bookshelves), but I actually hardly ever buy books these days. Between the books that I already own but haven’t read, books that I get for review, and library books, I have MORE than enough to read. (Plus I’m broke. :P) I do love used book sales though – especially for finding out-of-print editions. I went to school in Baltimore, which has the most amaaaazing place called The Book Thing, which is basically like a used bookstore, but everything is FREE! They run on volunteers and donations, and you can just go in and take however many books you want. It’s FANTASTIC. I definitely miss being able to go there and search for awesome books.
Happy Friday, everyone!
