The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag

Thank you to O.D. Book Reviews for tagging me in this book tag! πŸ’—

1. What do you like about buying new books?

It’s gotta be ~That New Book Smell~ 😍

Ok, but honestly? Buying books is such a treat for me. I don’t do it very often just because of my financial circumstances and the lifestyle I lived up until this past year which was very transient… So the act of walking into a book store, seeing all the books that are available, picking one out with a gorgeous cover and actually getting to take it home has always held a lot of excitement for me. I love ALL aspects of it. (But especially that smell!) ❀️

2. How often do you buy new books?

Very rarely. Maybe once or twice a year?

3. Bookshops or online book shopping: which do you prefer?

Oh, in person bookshops. Definitely. I love looking through everything available (and feeling up all the covers, haha). I don’t really purchase books unless they’re physical copies, and preferably hardcovers at that. (I borrow a lot of digital copies from the library though, but I only really buy books I “collect.”)

4. Do you have a favorite bookshop?

I don’t unfortunately because I feel really guilty going into them if I’m not planning on buying anything.

5. Do you pre-order books?

I wish! I think the last book I pre-ordered was Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows… and that was a long time ago. πŸ˜‚ I remember waiting on my front porch with my dad for the postal worker to drive up with it on its release day.

6. Do you have a monthly buying limit?

LMAOOOO, no. But I would love to be the type of person who does.

7. How big is your wish list?

My wish list is really just my TBR, haha, so very long. πŸ˜‚

8. Which three books from your wish list do you wish to own right now?

The Water Dancer because I’ve been meaning to read it for a while now; a hardcover copy of The Handmaid’s Tale, because it’s impossible to find for some reason; and the entirety of The Witcher series (besides The Last Wish) – but only once the books finally get new, updated covers that aren’t video game images thanks to the Netflix series release.

Ok, that last one is actually like seven books… πŸ™ˆ But in my defense, I know I’m going to have to play the long game to get those editions. πŸ˜…

This was a lot of fun! I’d like to tag Luxe from Mind of Luxe, Ariel from The Book View, Vim from The Booktopus Reads, Mayurakshi from Bookshelf Life and anyone else who I didn’t tag but wants to participate. πŸ’– As always, feel free to disregard if you aren’t interested (no pressure either way)!

Happy reading!
