TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by Ginger at GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This Friday'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?
The answer to this one for me would definitely buy! It also depends on how quick I want the book as to where I go shopping for them. For instance, if I don't mind waiting a week to two I'd look at Book Depository. The shipping is free and it's awesome for saving money on pre-orders.
Booksamillion is another fantastic shop but being in Australia the shipping is a bit more expensive. I think the last time I bought a book I paid for the most expensive which was like $30 or something like that for shipping but true to their word, four days later I had my book. So that was pretty cool!
Booktopia is pretty good for buying bulk load of books. The prices for the books are pretty good and Australia wide for up to 100 books it's only $6 or so dollars for shipping. The only downfall with this one is the time it takes. If it's not urgent, then go for it but sometimes I've had to wait a few weeks because they've had to get the book in from either overseas or publishers. There are some better options out there if you don't want to wait.
