And now on to today’s question…
Do you buy your books new, used or go to the library?
.All three. Since my book ban states that I have to read before I can buy it, it’s usually the library or used books.
My budget also demands that.

My answer is all three. I will buy new if it’s a book I really want, especially if it’s a series. Mostly I look for bargain used books as they’re cheaper though. I love the library and, although I use it more for my kids than for myself due to the limited amount of English language titles they stock (I live in Italy 🙂 ) I go there regularly

The answer used to be all three! Now, sadly, I don’t get to take out books from the library anymore. My kids still bring home books from the school library but the nearest library is a half hour drive for us and I just don’t have time to make the trip on a regular basis.
I buy used books from local thrift shops or from the hospital book sales. Most of the books I buy new are by local authors or by indies that I know and like to support. The only other books I really buy are books in series that I’ve started and need to complete. Honestly, the local and indie books keep me super busy!
I also borrow books. But I take good care of them and get them back to their rightful owners.

I generally do whichever’s cheapest at the time! For books or authors I’ve never read before, I look for them at the library first, to “try before I buy” as it were.
When a really sweet discount comes to my local bookstore (we have Barnes & Noble and Powell’s here!) I am not ashamed to take advantage of the great pricing and the home-delivery option!
Actually, June was the first time I made it to the quarterly book sale at my local library, and I had so much fun buying some high-quality “used” books (but a couple were even like-new) for a dollar or less!
As for indie books, I generally get the ebook first, unless it’s an author I’ve read and enjoyed and he or she is offering print books for a decent price–I am all about supporting that quality literature!
