Musing Mondays – Book Sources

Where do you buy/get most of your books?
Up front I buy books, religiously. I hate taking them out from the library because then I have to give them back and I don’t like doing that.
Generally I get all of my books from Barnes & Noble. I have the membership so I get discounts on everything, plus free express shipping (1 to 3 days), plus I can get eBooks easily if I choose to get them. I’m at Barnes & Noble at least once if not twice or thrice a week. It’s bad, I have a problem… Yes, I know.
My secondary book store is Borders. I like Borders and I do have a Borders rewards card, but for some reason I always end up at Barnes & Noble first.
Don’t get me wrong, I love secondhand bookstores too. I have a couple in the area that I like as well as a few up in Vermont that I go to when I’m on vacation. I have found some treasures in used bookstores as well.
My default however will always be Barnes & Noble, I love going to the store and shopping online and slinking around the cafe doing homework and reading. It’s good stuff.
