It's Friday!! 7/15

Q. What do I do when I are not reading?

Well, I blog (obviously) and I like to go for walks. Since I got married, I had to leave my puppy with my mom so I like to go visit when I can. But really, when I'm not reading, Church activities seem to take up more of my time (whether I want it to or not).

Book Blogger Appreciation: Which book blogs have inspired you or made a difference in your blogging experience?
There have been a lot. I have gotten tons of help from Candace at Candace's Book Blog, Lori at Pure Imagination and Angela at Reading Angel. But there have been others to help me along the way when I've needed help.

Book Blogger Hop
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

I buy most of mine from Amazon or Book Depository. I can get tons of freebies for my Kindle from Amazon which I do download like crazy sometimes. When I can I get them from the Library. But I live in a small town and they normally don't have anything I'm looking for. I haven't tried any of the swap places.

The three blogs you listed for your TGIF post are great blogs! I am just loving everyone's answers today!

Jules said...

Great post as always.

Is your hubby allergic to the puppies? That was a huge concern of mine when we got a labradoodle - I wasn't sure if he was going to cast hair or not. Thankfully he doesn't - he's mostly poodle anyway.

HAve a great weekend.

hi! just stopping by for the blog hop! I don't have a kindle (yet) but my mom has one and tells me about all the great free books she downloads on it!

Kathy said...

I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

I like the freebie or cheapy books as well for the kindle! Have my eye on a few more, just haven't bought them yet. Trying to give my credit card a break!

Here's my Friday Hops

I haven't tried any swap places either. I do all my library borrowing online.

Livia @ Butterfly-o-Meter Books said...

We buy our book from the same places; most convenient when the library is less likely to have titles we'd want *sigh*

Aww, you had to leave your puppy with your mom? Omg, I could never leave my cat. It's a package deal, or no deal, lol. I'm too used to having my cat around, lol.

Have a great weekend!

Hopping through. So sad that you had to give your puppy to your mom. My husband would love it if I gave my dog away, but I've told him he goes before the dog. Luckily, hubby doesn't have allergies.

Just dropping by for the blog hop. I love the Kindle freebies that Amazon does.

Hopping on by to say hello. Since your library is small, maybe see if they can get you stuff through interlibrary loan --- that's how I get some of my books that the library doesn't have. :)

Stephany said...

Hopping by to say Hello!!

I've never tried a book swap website, but I love going to Goodreads and enter to win those free books! Haha.

I'm a new follower. Hope to see you around!
