Follow Friday & Tagalong Friday {4}

Follow {my Book Blog} Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee.com.

This week's question:
Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

1. I have a book addiction, I cannot walk into a bookstore and walk out empty handed...ever!

2. I read physical books and books on my Nook at the same time...why must I choose?

3. I used to read a lot of chick-lit and mysteries until paranormal romances ruined me but I don't mind...a girl needs her smut fix!

4. I don't usually lend my books to my friends because they love to dog ear the pages...oh the horror!

5. My bookshelf is so full I've resorted to lining some up on my bedroom floor with bookends. You'd think that would stop me from buying more books...umm NO!

Happy Follow Friday!


18 & Over Book Blogger Tagalong Friday is a weekly theme hosted by Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance where book bloggers who review adult books come together to make new friends!
Question of the week:
Where is your favorite place to buy or swap books?

I'm a huge online shopper unless I happen to walk by a bookstore. I don't have many used book stores near me so I usually end up paying retail price for my books. My go-to online shops are Amazon and Barnes and Noble but I recently discovered The Book Depository which seems to have great sales as well! I hate making a trip to a bookstore to find my book is sold out or just not available at that store...you don't have to worry about that when you shop online!

TAG! You're it!

  2. Hopping by and following!
    I used to love buying books instore but then I moved from UK to Australia where they cost three times as much! So now I am addicted to Book Depository.
    Like you I am also a huge vampire fan and just recently read all three of Colleen Gleason's Regency Draculia - I see you are reading the first one now!

  3. I think we have led the same bookish life. I used to read the same genres until my girlfriend introduced me to paranormal romance. Now I can't get enough!

    Happy Friday!

  4. I'm so with you on the bookstore addiction - I feel guilty if I walk in and don't buy something!

  5. Hi Lori! Hoppin by on the 18+ I have a BAM right next to my Target so it's super convenient but they only seem to have new releases and since I'm a major series reader I can never find what I am looking for! So I've been doing a lot more online shopping. =)
    Have a great weekend!

  8. I'm the same way it is guaranteed that if I walk into a bookstore I will come out with a book in hand, if not several.

  10. My overflownig bookshelf hasn't stopped me from buying more either! I have different piles near my nightstand and in the living room. Might need to do something about that when I get married. :S

  11. Hopping through. Luckily, most of my real life friends don't read much so I don't have to lend my books :-)
