Book Tag Thursday

Book Tag Thursday: Anonymous Bookaholics Tag

books 001

I do enjoy these book tags but don’t participate that often. This one struck my fancy when I saw it at Life of a Female Bibliphile and couldn’t taking part.

  1. What do you like about buying new books?

Besides knowing I am the first one reading it, it is knowing that I am supporting an author by buying their book.


  1. How often do you buy new books?

I usually buy 1 or 2 a month, although I often go to a thrift store to buy several more.


  1. Bookstore or online book shopping: which do you prefer?

Before the pandemic, I preferred wandering the bookstore and checking out new books. Now, I order on line and have them delivered.


  1. Do you have a favorite bookshop?

I used to love a little bookstore at our mall, but it went out of business. Now I rely on Chapters/Indigo.


  1. Do you pre-order books?

I have only done this a few times, but I keep track of when a book I want is published and watch for it stores.


  1. Do you have a monthly buying limit?

Not really. I know I should but I know my limit and I am pretty good at keeping in that range.


  1. How big is your wish list?

Huge! I have a notebook and I write down books recommended by other bloggers, the newspaper, librarians. I try first to get them from the library though.


  1. Which three books from your wish list do you wish to own right now?

Vanished days 57183703  Once upon a wardrobe 57099601   Firekeepers Daughter final 7.12    

The Vanished Days by Susanna Kearsley (it isn’t available in Canada yet!)

Once Upon a Wardrobe by Patti Callahan.

The Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley



I am tagging anyone that wants to participate!

  1. My in-laws have learned that I love getting Amazon gift cards as gifts, so that’s what I use to buy new books through the year. But I’m mainly a library girl. And free books from NetGalley to review. 🙂 My wish list is impossibly long too; I realized a few years back that I have more books on it than I have time left to read them. lol.

  2. Love the answers to your tag and we are so similar, I do buy books from the Book Depository in the UK often so its online. It used to be cheaper but now about same price but no postage. Often takes a month to get here but I can handle that. And the choice is far wider than what is here in NZ.

    • The first time I tried Book Depository was when I won a book from you. Too bad you aren’t closer – would love to get together to chat – we do seem to share a lot of the same interests.

  3. I love buying new books – but some times get overwhelmed at my TBR list! I just bought two new books ‘To Paradise’ and ‘The School for Good Mothers’ and I’m excited to read them both.
