Everywhere you look you will find a book close at hand. In my car’s trunk, under car seats, car glove box, bookshelves, closets, tote bags, the bathroom, coffee tables, nightstands, in dressers under clothes, and that’s not including the 700 books on my NOOK and Kindle devices! I am not even sure where to start!
I said to myself I would take all duplicates and pass them on to others for their reading enjoyment. HaHaHa this did not work, I just could not do it. Instead I purchase copies for my friends. Even when I have the ARC, HC release, MM release and e-Book version of a title. When I really like a story and/or author I purchase their audiobooks in addition.
I am starting to think this may not be a good thing? In my defense I do read my books more than once. I take the best care with each and everyone to not break a spine or damage even one page. My feeling is the story is a gift from the writer that brings me pleasure. So when an author takes the time to visit with me and personalize a book I consider it priceless!
How many of you feel this way? Do you only read a physical book or use an eReader. I am also curious to know if you follow an author do you preorder their books?
