1. What do you like about buying new books?
The thrill it gives me, of course! I like sniffing my own books, which sounds disgusting to other people but I’m ok with that. So when I purchase new books, I always get excited thinking about how it smells. Also, I’m a hoarder so I’m always enthusiastic to build my collection.
2. How often do you buy new books?
Just when I feel like it… Or when I finish some from my stash. Or when there’s a completed series available in box sets. Yep, box sets get to me faster than a regular book would. There is something about a completed series that makes you think you deserve the set. The fact that it’ll look good on your shelf.
3. Bookstore or online book shopping – which do you prefer?
Bookstores. Traditional book hunting is my pick-me-up habit. Reorganizing shelves in bookstores gives me satisfaction that there was a time I seriously considered changing jobs.
4. Do you have a favorite bookshop?
Powerbooks because the selection is awesome and they have couches you can actually use if there is a book you want to read. They even encourage people to read available copies of the book so you don’t need to do it discreetly as in other bookshops with plastic film-covered copies.
However, since I also have a thing for pre-loved books, when my stingy self calls to me and tells me I can purchase good books for a cheap price, I go to the nearest Booksale.
5. Do you preorder books?
I only did it for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I don’t think I’ll be preordering any other books unless it is from J.K. Rowling.
6. Do you have a monthly book buying limit?
I don’t really think I do but my father often tells me that I buy books faster than I read them so maybe I should. Lol
7. Book buying bans – Are they something for you?
I don’t really ban myself from buying any book.
8. How big is your wishlist?
My wishlist tends to be very short because I end up buying the books I want the week after [Heads up, I failed the marshmallow test].
9. Which three books from your wishlist do you wish to own NOW?
Will 3 different covers do? I already have two sets of Harry Potter but I still want to purchase these because of the covers… I know I’m hopeless.
