The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag


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.

    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.

    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!
