Do you buy books new or thrift them?

 This topic from Long and Short Reviews was an interesting one, because it took me back to my teenage years. We had a local market which had a bookstall and every week we would be there looking for cheap novels.

My friend was much more into it than me, I have to admit, because most of their stock was Barbara Taylor Bradford or Mills and Boon, neither of which I was really into. However, I did pick up a few while I was there - and donated them back a few weeks later after reading them.

These days it's new all the way. That said, if my current local market has a bookstall, it might be worth a look.

So do you prefer new or thrifted?


  1. I like thrifting books. New books are too expensive for me.

  2. I am stuck on my Ebooks! I have no room in my tiny apartment for books BUT I love to read!

  3. I'd love something like that now!
