Book Blogger Hop 007

Book Blogger Hop 007

I keep forgetting to post these on Sundays so I’m just not going to expect myself to post it on a Sunday anymore.

Watch me remember this coming Sunday and I post it on the correct day for once.

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy from Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

Book Blogger Hop @ Coffee Addicted Writer is a weekly writing prompt for you to answer on your own blog. Prompts are posted well in advance. This week’s question from Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books is:

Have you ever read a library book you loved so much, you just HAD to own it, so you bought a copy for yourself after returning the library book you had already finished?

Just kidding.

I am pretty sure that I did? I just… honestly don’t remember what it would have been.

Maybe let me think about it and get –

OH WAIT!

I REMEMBER!

I just bought this one like super recently after constantly talking about it with some discussion posts. So there you go! I found one.

What about you??

  1. I don’t want to say I do this all the time… but most of the time if I buy a book, it’s because I already read it somewhere else.

    I only buy books I really love… OR books I know I will love or can appreciate for some reason other than the content (e.g. written by a favorite author, part of a favorite series).

    But yeah- most new hardcovers I purchase have been carefully vetted. The irony being that I don’t ever read them again after I bought them… sheesh. I have problems.

    1. I think that’s a way better strategy than me! I buy books that I want to read, but then never end up reading them. It’s such a bad habit. One day I’ll get out of it lol. I feel like if I borrow a book and read it, what’s the point of buying it since I don’t think I’ll read it ever again. I may have to change that mindset though because sometimes it’s fun to go back through the books I liked and just kind of remind myself of what I liked about it.

      1. Oh no I totally buy books and don’t read them too- good intentions and all that Jazz. Those books I usually buy used though for a couple bucks.

        I think it comes from knowing the book doesn’t have to be returned so I don’t feel the pressure to read it.

        But hardcover purchases are more about collecting than the buying to read it.

  2. I’m not sure I’ve done this, but most of the books I own, I’ve already read, my favorites. So I almost never go out and buy books I want to read – I just wait to get them at the library. I guess I’m a good candidate for buying a book I’ve already read, though – it could happen! Make sense?

  3. I don’t think I’ve actually done that. But I have a list with books I want to own, and there are many books on there that I read from the library!

  4. I love all the recent Raven gifs! Her and Hilary Duff were my favorite Disney Channel girls as a kid. I have DEFINITELY been guilty of buying a book after reading a library copy… sometimes they are just so good and have such beautiful covers that it feels like a crime to not buy your own!?
