Why do you have so many books? 

Well, why do you have so many unwarranted opinions?

It get exhausting to listen to people’s comments about our bookworm tendencies. Look, buddy, I don’t really know why I sniff a book either. And it’s not hoarding! It’s called building a fort. Get a grip on reality! *goes back to crying over fictional characters*

Misplaced humor aside, though, being a bookworm draws a lot of questions from people. So I’m all here for the Anonymous Bookaholics meeting where we can talk about all the upcoming releases, dig out the hidden gems, and go on book shopping sprees together!

 Ah, how gloriously fun it is to be a bookworm, we would say, ignoring the screams for mercy from our wallets.

What do you like about buying new books?

Being able to finally read them, duh!

I love watching my collection grow. My sister and I are both bookworms, so we’re

How often do you buy new books?

I don’t get to buy new physical books often. They are always out of my budget, however, I get to buy secondhand books every two months or so. My kindle is a life-saver when it comes to this because there are Kindle deals for as low as 0.99USD and some times there are even free books!

Bookstore or online book shopping – Which do you prefer?

I don’t mind both, to be honest. Online book shopping because I often don’t find the books I want at my local bookstore.

Do you have a favorite bookshop?

Yes! I buy most of my books from Booksale (a secondhand bookstore in the Philippines), Books ni Tess (a Facebook secondhand bookstore), and, of course, Book Depository.

Do you pre-order books?

I really wish I could! The pre-order goodies always look amazing but pre-orders are always expensive for me. So I just lust over the books until a cheaper option comes.

Do you have a monthly book buying limit?

I really should, though. I mostly buy a lot of Kindle reads. At least I know an overflowing bookstack won’t be the end of me!

How big is your wishlist?

    Yeah, Avery’s blog rocks 🙂 (also, I do know I have a ‘minor’ book hoarding problem. It’s true. Arghh.)

    I sometimes do preorder from Amazon, but you can only preorder (even Kindle) books when you add your card there. And I usually only have a gift card balance. I DO NOT want to have my card there because srsly xD then I would spend so much more on books. LOL

    I saw a BEAUTIFUL edition of The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock in London! Didn’t buy it, cause it didn’t make sense, I had already read it, after all. But it was a shame to leave it there. It had nice red stained page edges!

      Hahaha yeah, those daily Kindle deals will be the death of me. I also subscribe to the Dead Good newsletter and there’s ALWAYS deals for crime fiction. Ugh.

      Aah I so badly want that book! I’ve been hearing so many good things about it! Unfortunately, I can’t find it in our local bookstore. 😦

    This is such a fun tag, I loved reading your answers. And yay for October birthdays! 😀
    I love the pre-order goodies offered just as well and I wish more of these things were international, more often than not they are US-only, that makes me a bit sad :/
    I’ve heard great things about Circe and The Poppy War, I hope you’ll love them! Happy reading 😀
