Follow Friday (2)


Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Rachel at www.parajunkee.com.


What do I do when I am not reading?


Well, it depends really on the time of the year.  This summer, I'm taking a MCAT prep class and a CSUN physics course (+ lab) which eat up about eight hours of the day.  I try to read during my spare time so I can keep this blog running, but when I'm not reading, I'm writing or trying to catch up with all my homework or exercising or daydreaming :D.


I didn't plan my summer so well / didn't think that it would be this tough/time-consuming.  Fall is much better though :).  I mean yes, I'd still get homework from my college professors, but I'd also be surrounded by my friends... and would undoubtedly be having much more fun.  Too many things go in at college to describe in one post ;).

Book Blogger HopBook Blogger Help is a meme hosted by www.crazy-for-books.com.  This week’s question comes from Veronica who blogs at: Read Books, Have Fun.
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

I used to get my books from Borders until two summers ago, when I was going to be a freshman and my college offered its students free Amazon Prime membership.  That meant free 2-day shipping and 40% or something like that off practically all the hard-covers that I wanted.  And of course, there's the cheaper option of buying Used books from Amazon.  So ever since then, I've been an Amazon addict.  Pretty much all my spending costs are from there :D.



What about you :)?

  3. Hi, new follower!

    That sounds like a great deal! I'm obsessed with thebookdepository.com free postage and cheap books! (for me anyway, cause I'm from Australia)

    look forward to reading more from you!

  4. Hi - I'm taking a class this fall and I'm starting to wonder how I'm going to work, run 2-3 blogs and do my literacy events. No clue! How do you keep up with your schedule?

    I'm following you from the Book Bloggers Hop and would love a follow back.

  8. 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. Blog-hopping by to visit and follow! Amazon has me pretty well hooked, also. Book-buying, ebook-buying...soon, I'll probably be buying my shoes on Amazon! :-)
