I prefer to buy used books when I buy books, but if I need something specific, I go with Amazon.

I no longer read books. This is sad. Why don't I read books anymore? Oh, yeah, time? No time. I should make time. Think I will...

Playwright David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, et al) once said:

"People who DON'T read hold no advantage over people who CAN'T read."

Of course, he may have a vested interest in everyone reading.

So, no matter where you get your material,
Let's All Read!!

I generally only buy physical books, if there's a specific title I'm looking for I buy it online since that's generally cheaper, but I also go to used book stores to browse and end up picking up stuff I wouldn't have chosen otherwise.

Amazon - love physical books but am making switch to ebooks. Really enjoying my Kindle & having a whole library at my fingertips. Just wish ebooks were more cost effective.

Library (I have to pay over $100 a year in cash for a card) and thrift stores. I usually let my card lapse for a few months before renewing, and read my used book collection.

I buy hard copies if I know it's a book I'm going to keep and read again, either Amazon or the grocery store. Cheap ebooks from Amazon when I'm trolling for new authors.

So when is this "Old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Audiobooks are my thing. I get to read while driving. I use because, unlike a library, I don't have to return it & I don't get fined.

Who says I read? I'd have to actually open books, spend valuable mental power reading them, rather than just turn on my generic, proprietary gaming system and drone away at a mindless game while mashing buttons.

I do not buy new book, most of them are used books.
