Hey people. It’s book tag day! Sam @RiverMoose-Reads tagged me for The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag, THANK YOU! So, let’s do this.
What do you like about buying new books?
Is this even a question?! What do I like? Having more books, putting them on their shelf, staring at their beauty, knowing that I can read them anytime I want…
How often do you buy new books?
Ok, this is tricky, because nowadays I rarely buy physical books, because MONEY! But I do buy ebooks fairly regularly, especially if there’s a good deal, but probably not more than 2 or 3 times a month.
Bookstore or online book shopping – Which do you prefer?
Ideally, I’d rather buy books at a read physical bookstore. In the ideal setting where such bookstore would have a variety of books in english and also the same prices as Amazon. But that rarely happens so I end up ordering books online a lot.
Do you have a favourite bookshop?
I do! Well, here in Barcelona either way.
Do you pre-order books?
Nope, never done it. I just buy them when they come out, no big deal.
Do you have a monthly book buying limit?
Right now I don’t, and I don’t think I’ve ever had. If I think I have the money to spare and really want the books, I just buy them. No money, means no books. PERIOD!
Book buying bans – Are they something for you?
Not really, I don’t usually think like that. For me it’s like everything else in life, if you have the money, good, when i don’t, I don’t need to ban myself to buy stuff, I just won’t do it, because otherwise I’ll have to struggle for more important things, like food and transportation, and i love books, but i have my limits.
How big is your wishlist?
Quite big! If someone said at this moment “buy how many books you want, I’m paying“, I would probably manage around 100 titles on the spot.
Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own NOW?
I would probably want Empire of Storms, because DUH! First and Then, because it’s finally out on paperback. And The Sun is Also A Star, because I love Yoon’s first book.

Love your answers!
I’ve only ever pre-ordered one book and that was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare otherwise like you I just wait until they come out 🙂
:D, I was actually lucky and I bought Lady Midnight before it came out, but at a physical store 😉
Glad you had fun with the tag! Loved the gifs you used!
The gifs were fun, and your ability to poke fun st yourself made me laugh. I related to a lot of things you said, esp. about “no book bans.” Someday I have got to get around to reading Nicola Yoon! I’d love to hear what you liked about her first book.
🙂 I loved the diversity and the innocence of the whole situation. it’s a cute YA romance, so sweet and powerful at the same time
This was so fun! Although, I am amazed you haven’t been pre-ordering books. I love doing that! Thanks for the tag!
i can’t pre-order… i like to spend the money and have the book immediately, you know?
I completely understand!
Love you answers, especially for the first and third questions 🙂
My wishlist could probably reach 100 titles too. There’s no end to the amount of books I want to read.
Thanks for the tag!
Awesome answers. I normally buy my books online too because there are no English book stores where I live!
yeah, that’s a big issue =/
