‘Tis the season for more book tags tra la la la la la la la laaaaaaaa. I know I’ve done a lot of Christmassy Book Tags over Blogmas but I’ve seen so many good ones, so why not?
This tag was created by abookolive. Go and give her some love!
1. What is your average monthly budget for books?
Hahahahahaha. Oh, you’re serious? I don’t set myself a budget some times I’ll buy 1, sometimes 3 or if I got to a bookish event like YALC I might get 20 or so…
2. What’s the most you’ve ever spent in a bookstore?
Probably £50 or so? BUT I do get discount in a book shop this Christmas…so we’ll see. At YALC though which isn’t technically a book shop but a lot of stalls I saved and then spent about £150. Eeek!
3. Are you willing to pay full price for a brand new release, or will you wait until you have a coupon or there’s a sale?
I will completely pay full price for a new release! Although I am guilty of a buy one get one free…
4. Would you rather buy one new book or several less expensive used copies?
It depends on the condition of the books to be honest. If they’re in good condition yes but if they’re stained and battered probably not…
5. What do you think is a reasonable price for a new hardback book? A paperback? An eBook?
Hmmm it depends on the book really. I think £15 for a hardback is reasonable, £7.99 for a paperback and about £3 for an ebook.
6. Is a signed book worth more to you? How about a first edition?
Yes, 100%. I love having signed books that the author has touched themselves. And I absolutely LOVE going to signings!
7. What is your most valuable book (sentimental or actual value)?
Hmmm, probably my first edition delux of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Fun fact, we found it at a car boot sale for 50p because people didn’t know what they were selling…
8. Will you pay more for a cover or edition you like better?
9. What physical characteristics does a good quality book have?
Nice cover, good quality pages, not mass market or a film poster cover *shudder*.
10. If you won the lottery, what bookish things would you do with the money?
Ok so I have this dream of renting a huge car or even a limo and taking it up to Waterstones Piccadilly and Foyles in Tottenham Court Road after hours to shop to my hearts content. Then have my own library in a new house. Also track down a first edition copy of The Bell Jar.
BONUS: Give us an image (actual or mental) of your dream home library!
Ok so first of all huge, thick carpets and electric heating (open fires are great but fire near books?!) wall to wall shelves, comfy sofas and a small tea tray stacked with snacks and tea at all time.
