Bookish Tag: Book Buying Habits Tag

Bookish Tag Banner

Another bookish tag that I wanted to try! I just saw this tag done by dancrossbookblog.


1. Where do you buy your books from?

I buy my books on Amazon (Online), Thriftbooks (Online), National Book Store, Fullybooked, Facebook Groups (Online) and Book Outlet (Online).

2. Do you ever pre-order books and if so, do you do this in-store or online?

I haven’t done it yet.

3. On average, how many books do you buy a month?

Well, on average, 10-12 books and 80% of it are all in Hardcover!

4. Do you use your local library?

No. Actually, I don’t really know if our city has a public library. If it has one, I don’t even have some free time to visit it.

5. What is your opinion on library books?

I think it is handy for people who don’t have money to buy their own books.

6. How do you feel about second-hand books?

I love second-hand books! Half of my collections are all second hand. Then, aside from it being used already, they are also very cheap. You’re lucky if you’ll find a copy that is almost like new.

7. Do you keep your TBR pile on your main bookshelves or no?

NO! Hahahaha! I kept them all together on my shelves or boxes. My TBR list for the month is just posted on my blog – on the sidebar. The whole TBR can be found in my Goodreads.

8. Do you plan to read all of the books you own?

Yes! I don’t buy books if I don’t have any plans of reading it! It just that, if the book I owned was part of a series and I don’t have the complete set, sometimes, I don’t read them yet.

9. What do you do with books you feel you will never read/did not enjoy?

I sell it online, use it as a giveaway prize, or sometimes if I’m generous, I just give it to someone else who is interested in reading it.

10. Have you ever donated books?

YEP! I already donated hundreds of books.

I’m a member of Rotaract club at my University, and we usually have a project wherein we donate books to public schools in provinces.

I also had donated some of my pristine copy on some organizations in the other universities/colleges.

11. Have you ever been on a book buying ban?

Yes, actually, I’m on a book buying ban right now, and it started last month. I already have a lot of books right now that I haven’t read and I already ordered almost 30-40 books last April, and I’m just waiting for it to be delivered to my house by my friend – who is currently on the US – when she goes back here in PH.

12. Do you feel that you buy too many books?

No, There’s no such thing as too many books for me. I love having a lot of it.



I copied this part from another blogger. Choose the bloggers to tag by going through his recent follower, commenter, and notifications feed, and I loved the idea. So,

Most recent follower: Huriyah of SugarQuills

Most recent commenter: Carla of carlalovestoread

Most recent ‘liker’: Catherine of IHaveaBookBlogNow

If you already did this tag, then it’s up to you if you’ll want to do this again.

And that’s where it ends. Thanks for reading! Feel free to do this tag too!
