Hi, bloggers! Once again, I haven’t posted in a while… I’ve beeen quite busy. But, now, the lovely Nicole from Sorry, I’m Booked tagged me to do this fun tag, and I had to do it. Thanks, Nicole, so much 🙂 Let’s start!
My name is Irena and I’m a bookaholic. Here are my answers:
What Do You Like About New Books?
Everything! XD I like the excitement you get from getting a new book, especially if it’s a book you’ve been wanting to read for a while. And the smell! New books smell amazing. 😉
How Often Do You Buy New Books?
It depends. Now, when I have a job, I buy more than before, becuse I can. XD I’m actually not an impulse buyer, so I don’t often get carried away.
Bookstore Or Online Shopping — Which Do You Prefer?
I love browsing thrugh the books in a bookstore, but bookstores here suck. 😥 So, unfortunately, online shopping is the only way for me to get the books I want. Especially if I want to read them in English, not in translation. I don’t like reading translated books if I can read them in their original language.
Do You Have A Favorite Bookshop?
Well, as you can see in the previous answer, not really… There is only one bookstore that I like, but it’s not that great… When it comes to online shopping, I order books from Book Depository.
Do You Pre-Order Books?
Very rarely. Most of the books were already published when I read them. XD I guess people mostly pre-order books from series, because they can’t wait to see what happens next, but I don’t read many series, so this doesn’t really apply to me.
Do You Have A Monthly Book-Buying Limit?
Not really. XD
Book-Buying Bans, Are They Something For You?
As I said, I don’t really have a problem with over-buying. (Is that even a word?) I don’t like to pile up too many books, and having a huge TBR pile. So there’s no need for me to be on a book-buying ban.
How Big Is Your Wish List?
I have about 200 books on my Goodreads TBR, but I’m sure there’s even more on my mind. XD
Which Three Books From Your Wish List Do You Wish You Owned Right Now?
Just three? This is hard… XD
Let’s say: Fudoki by Kij Johnson, Nothing Like the Sun by Anthony Burgess, and The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell (though it’s the first in a series, so I’d have to get the others, too. ;)).
