Who's ready for the weekend?! I know I am! I'm introducing a new(ish) feature for Fridays to re-cap the week's posts & to propose a question for my followers. Feel free to get involved by linking up at the bottom. If not, I'd love to read your responses in the comments. Thanks!
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?
I am definitely a buyer and a hoarder of my books. I keep books that I don't even like. I keep books that I have no intention of reading (at least in the future) In my head it is the principal of the matter. Books are precious (makes me sound like Gollum) someone worked very hard on that book and it deserves to be on my shelf.
And my hording has gotten worse since ebooks. I'll get it on ebook and then decide I MUST have it in paper format. So I go out and buy it.
Q: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
Science fiction - the old school kind, like The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury - I get it. I have done my homework on it. But I don't GET it.
Political books with strong underlying messages - I get that too. People have points and believe very strongly in their political views. I have my own set, but I always feel like this type of book gets so bogged down that it is more of a thesis than a fictional story.
What about you? Are you a hoarder? What genre do you avoid? Leave me a post and don't forget to follow :)
