Books on Thursday... and I BUY!

I’ve asked, in the past, about whether you more often buy your books, or get them from libraries. What I want to know today, is, WHY BUY?

Well! I buy all my books :-)
I am addicted to them and seeing them adorning my book-shelf[ i don't have any lol) gives me a HIGH! I took to reading this September, after stopping it Years ago! And hence the name of the blog :) and since then, all of the books I have read[ except 2] I have bought with my hard earned money ...lol!
I know it is crazy :) But I can't help it! Talk about addiction :) And I love it!

I ofcourse 'lend' my books out to friends too! But seldom get it back, but that's alright :D

I have that same addiction; amassing books gives me a high, too. At least the only thing it hurts is my wallet... :)

Trish said...

Well Veens--there are worse addictions! LOL. I'm so glad that you are giving reading a chance and enjoying it! I buy my books too, although I try to keep a budget and buy used ones. Now you just need to save up for a bookshelf! :D

It is the best addition one can possibly have! You know I read like crazy! And buy like that too!

Must buy!

Veens said...

Jessi -- it hurts mine too lol!

Piya... yoo-hoo! :) Righto!

Trish - Mine has a budget too :) I buy them on the roadsides--that are really very cheap! :) that way i get more books!

Hi Veens, I just wanted to say thanks for coming over to read my blog and comment so much. I love comments and you make me smile.

I will see if I can scare up any more international giveaways next year.

Should I bother asking for ebook editions from publishers who don't want to pay for shipping international? I was going to try that if asking for a physical book doesn't work (physical books are better, I think), but I don't know how international entrants feel about ebooks.

Any thoughts?

Veens said...

Ohh Ann! so very Nice of you, to think like this!

I would love eBooks too! I don't really mind! Hey I like your blog, and that's why I come over to comment :)! I am so happy that you think for me so much!
Thanks a LOT girl!

Me too!

Looking at books sitting on a shelf makes me feel happy.

I am going to cut back this coming year. We have an awesome library and I'll try to support them more.

Veens said...

Shana, I think that's the trait of all book-lovers :)

Veens said...

J Kaye! That's great :)
I think I should also :)
