TGIF: Buy or Burrow?
TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week's question: 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 mainly get my books from the library, mainly because I can't afford to buy all the books that I read over the course of the year. I would prefer to own my books because I am a fairly slow reader and I like to take my time reading. When I do buy, I go through ChaptersIndigo mainly because its really the only bookstore chain in the area (there aren't really any independent stores in the area) and also because they also allow me to purchase books through my debit card online, which I do more often when I purchase a book due to the fact that I get a better deal online and also because my local store doesn't really have the book that I want to read (sometimes I can get a really good deal in store, like when I purchased The Passage for about $13, but that is very rare).
