A few years there were only a couple places I found books. My library at the time didn’t have an updated teen section. I’d be lucky to see a new release (I wanted) within six months of release. But I still hoped to find something new on my weekly visits. I also browsed Amazon and purchased books there or drastically on sale at a bookstore.
I didn’t read as much then either. And cost did play a role.
Jump forward a couple years later to the present.
I can’t even begin to read all the books I want to.
- Library (Someone new started ordering books and almost all the new releases are there.)
- Overdrive (Wow! A huge selection of books I can barely make a dent in.)
- Amazon – Self-published books. (I can buy twice the number of books, sometimes more, and I read samples so I usually know I’ll enjoy them.)
- Amazon – free books. (No I don’t read all of them but I test them out and often read the entire thing.)
As a reader I’m loving it. I always have a book I want to read either in my library bag or on my Kindle. And I’m falling drastically behind. And not because I don’t want to read the book or because I don’t read a lot!
How about you? Where do your books come from?
