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! 😄 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. 😄 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. 😄 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. 😄
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. 😄
Which Three Books From Your Wish List Do You Wish You Owned Right Now?
Just three? This is hard… 😄
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. ;)).
