Monday Musings is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.
This weeks Musing asks: Where do you buy / get most of your books?
I would like to say that I get all my books from my local indie bookstore, or even that I have the opportunity to go and peruse the shelves of Indigo-Chapters, but such has not been the case. The last 4 years, I have been living in some of out the way places, so book shopping the old-fashioned-way hasn’t been an option for me. When I was living in Yellowknife, I used to order from Chapters online, because there was free shipping on orders of $39 and now, living in Croatia, I order primarily from Book Depository because the shipping is free. Occasionally I will venture out to some of the local book shops here, but the selection of English titles is usually quite limited and the prices are ridiculous. Once I get back to Canada I have a goal to start borrowing some books from the library, something I haven’t done since I was a kid and to start frequenting real book stores.
