Today’s Musing Mondays asks us…
How has the economy impacted your book buying? Do you think it’ll change the reading and book-buying habits of the country? Will it increase your library visits? Will it make you wait for the paperback edition instead of buying the hardcover?
The economy hasn’t really impacted my book buying but then I don’t buy a lot of new books. If it’s a favorite author, then yes I do buy new but I buy online and it’s quite a lot cheaper than in the store, otherwise I’ll pick it up at the library. Since I started blogging I’ve been either winning a lot of books or reviewing for someone so that’s saved on having to buy or wait for the newer books from the library.
I don’t know how much it will affect the book buying habits of the country. I still think if you want a book bad enough you will buy it. If money is tight and you can’t, there is the library. Which brings me to the next question-I do think a lot of people on a normal basis-or those of us who read a lot-make use of the library so yes I could see library visits on the increase.
How about you-has the economy changed how you buy books?
