  2. I also love the library. We also have a pretty decent online/download library for audio and ebooks which I am loving since I got my ereader in December!

  3. I would love to work at a library! I've been considering going back to school to get my Masters in Library Science degree. New follower :)


  4. That's a lot of different places! Thanks for hopping by!

  5. Just blogging by, have a happy Friday!


  6. Hi! Just following you back! I'm quite impressed with your organized list, I just ramble. :) I'm hoping soonish I'll start getting review copies from publishers... Sigh.

  7. Thanks for the great list. I'll definitely have to take a look at some of those online sites. :)

  8. I don't do blog tours or take many review copies. Two years ago I started tracking where my books were coming from. Please come see where I get my books.

  9. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer – http://www.howardsherman.net

  10. Wow. That is a lot of ways to get books. I use of few of those, as well. I must admit, though, that I haven't heard of some of them.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog and following. I've returned the favor.

    Have a great weekend!
