Do You Buy Books New or Thrift?
Long and Short Reviews have been doing a Blog hop all year on Wednesdays! My good friend over at DV Walking Wounded clued me in on the fun, and I decided to join in for the rest of the year. So every Wednesday, they have a topic, and each blogger who participates writes a post. Readers can go to the Long and Short Reviews page, see all the blogs, and read everyone’s different posts! It is a great idea!
This week's topic is Do You Buy Books New or Thrift?
I have to be honest; as much as I LOVE to read, I have not bought a physical book in years! On December 23, 2010, I purchased my 1st of a few Amazon Kindles. (I know because I actually searched my buying history, LOL) I love digital books for a few reasons. They are cheaper, I can buy them the moment they release without leaving my apartment, and I don’t have to store books anymore.
The 1st Section here is Who buys books used more often?
Girls 68% Boys 59%
The 2nd Section here is Who gifts books more often?
Girls 21% Boys 11%
The 3rd Section here is Who keeps their books more often?
Boys 60% Girls 52%
When I did buy books, I guess I was not the typical girl. I ALWAYS bought new, did not give books as gifts, and always kept my books until I moved into my current apartment.
What are your preferences? How do you match up in this comparison?
