This or That Thursday: Challenge #95

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: How long has it been since you last bought a book?

I bought some books eleven days ago. It was a big haul too, a total of nineteen books. BookOutlet is just addictive.

I normally limit myself to one haul per month or every other month from BookOutlet, never usually that large either. I don’t really get my books anywhere else unless it’s like a new release then I’ll order it on Amazon. 

I’m trying to chill on the book buying because I have a lot of unread ones left on my shelf.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #94 TBR

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: Do you have a TBR list? If so, tell me about it: Is it written or typed? Do you use Goodreads? How long is the list? How many books are on it? etc.

I definitely have a TBR. There is no physical list or anything like that though. I mostly go off my Goodreads or my shelves, like the books I have there that I haven’t read. I can’t tell you how many books is on that list, it’s pretty long and ever growing.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #93 Typos

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: Have you ever found a typo (or typos) in books?

Honestly no. I don’t feel like this should be super surprising though, books go through lots of people and lots of edits before they are finished and printed. I think maybe the only place I would possibly find a typo is a galley/unfinished copy or maybe a book from a self-published author. Continue reading

This or That Thursday: Challenge #89 Fantasy/Sci-Fi

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: Which genre do you prefer: Fantasy/sci-fi or mystery/thriller?

I do not like mystery or thriller. It is just not my thing. I don’t like anything suspenseful or murder-y like that. I am super into sci-fi and fantasy though. Fantasy is rivaling contemporary at the moment for the top spot as my favorite genre. Sci-fi is either third or fourth, competing with dystopian.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #87 Bookstore Buying

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS:When you’re in a book store how do you decide which book(s) you will buy?
Like will you: Know what you’ll buy before you get there; Bring (a portion of) your TBR and narrow it down; Pick the cheapest ones so you can buy the most with the money you have on you; Buy the ones written by authors you know you like;Pick the pretty covers; Browse and read the descriptions; Look up their Goodreads rating; or anything else?

This is a bit tricky for me. I buy a lot of my books online. I don’t often buy books a physical store. It honestly is just a price thing. Amazon is evil and all that but I wouldn’t be able to buy the amount of books that I do if I was paying $17 for a hardback. That being said, I do occasionally buy at a bookstore, there are just too many good ones near me not to and sometimes I have impulses. Continue reading
