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.

So because I am curious and it is not much of a fun article if I just say “neither,” I did some research. 

According to Thriftbooks, I did a short boy vs. girl comparison. 

Do You Buy Books New or Thrift graph

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?

  1. I’m very much a digital girl myself!

    When I was younger, it was the library or nothing, but now, I’ll get a book by nearly any means necessary. I rarely give books as gifts, and I’m like a book dragon with the hoard I have going on (but am trying to pare down)!
