Where do you get your books?
Library sometimes, Overdrive, Kindle Unlimited, and my favorite used bookstore, Pioneer Books in Provo.
Do you reread books? Yes, but not as often as I would like! There are so many new ones and it’s so easy to download a new book.
What do you do with old books? Mostly I trade them in at Pioneer Books, but I also donate them to the thrift store sometimes. I only keep book I’m sure I will want to reread.
I hope this was fun to read! I’d love to see your answers. I know mine are heavily weighted to fantasy, but that is what I read most of. Take care and happy reading!
