Well, if I had the choice, and I’m sure 99.9% of book people would agree, I would buy books just about everyday of my life and find a way to make room, haha.
I love reading (obvious), and when you love something, you don’t mind spending money to enjoy it.
Thanks to the wonderful blessing that is Dollar Tree’s book section, I can afford to buy a lot of new books fairly often. I do still visit Barnes and Noble every so often (there’s one literally 5 minutes from my home), though it’s typically just to kill time. On a cool note, my local B&N has expanded their clearance section and I usually spend more time there than browsing the full-price books 😁
If I have the money and there’s a cool garage sale or a really awesome sale going on while I’m out and about, of course I’m going to treat myself and pick up some more books, haha. I can’t help it (especially a good deal)! I also order books from ThriftBooks every so often (a majority of their books are $3 and some change), and I love that they have free shipping (US only for now) if you spend over $10 or more. Nah, this isn’t a sponsored post😜, I just recently ordered some books from there so I thought I’d throw that in there.
Overall, I buy books as much as I can as long as I have the means to. Why not? Whatever you enjoy doing, invest in doing it if it brings you peace of mind, happiness, or adds anything positive to your life. This is an often repeated saying that people may be tired of hearing but that doesn’t make it any less true: Life is Short. So, do what makes you happy. ♥️
