Where I Get My Books From
So I'm pretty much a total 'Plain Jane' when it comes to the places where I get my books from; it's not anything magical or special, haha. But I do feel like I've won the lottery when I come home with a huge haul of books piled in my hands and falling over the ground. *takes a deep breath* But it comes pretty simply and naturally, if you ask me.
Indigo/Chapters is probably the most magical place on this earth. No really, for you Americans this is like the 'Barnes and Noble,' except you guys have it a little better. (But our Starbucks in-store is so much better at Chapters, just saying.) This is my #1 go-to place for buying books. They have in-store kiosks where you can purchase your books without having to go to the counter and they have tons of locations so you're surely able to find what you're looking for somewhere near you.
This store has been with me since the start of my reading career, haha. I went from children's books to pre-teen books to YA, all in this one franchise. And if I want to pre-order something, they deliver straight to your home with free shipping if you spend over $25!
2. The Library
This is another magical place—especially to go to if the price of hardcovers are bugging me. And... They get new releases so quickly and I'm able to return something (without paying first), especially if I didn't enjoy the book in the first place. I obviously get upset if I read something with a 5 star rating and then I'm forced to return it... *cries*
I LOVE PUBLISHERS AND WHEN THE UPS TRUCK COMES TO MY HOUSE AND DELIVERS ME MY GOODIES! No, seriously, I've worked so hard for me to review books and now it's all real. That's the best thing. Oh, and then there's also:
These two are also fantastic goodie-givers. THEY'RE SO GENEROUS AS WELL! I normally use Edelweiss more often, though I did begin my blogging career with Netgalley. Either way, go for them.
I don't use Amazon that often, though they sometimes have a ton of books for free and the Kindle deals are magnificent. If you have a Kindle like I do, then the best thing to invest in is ebooks from Amazon, and use WHISPERNET, as it delivers your ebook directly through the Cloud onto your device. It's perfect.
