It depends on the book for me. If I have to read the book for a class, I buy it. If I find something intersting at the library or bookstore, I buy it. I like collecting books. I have over 120 books(including japanese manga).

I don't really like getting books for libraries, if I check out a book and like it, most likely, I'll buy it.

DO you believe in buying books are collecting them?
i prefer to buy those books which i like most .. so i can read them afterward also ..

do you prefer issuing them from the library and return them one you've read?
Library is good option and prefer to borrow from them and return them as we hardly read any book twice unless u like it most ...

I prefer checking out books from the library because my city library is huge and has a great collection of any book I have ever needed so farTongue

Of course, if one buys, one must read it. OR, do you prefer issuing them from the library and return them one you've read? I prefer this one because I don't spend any penny and have the pleasure reading it.

i am just like u dat's wat i believe also and do! Wink

I always issue books from the library..once you've read it. its no point keeping it in the shelf to collect dust unless its a very interesting book..In my life, the only 4 books I ever bought apart from the college texts are Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, To kill a mocking bird and Great Expectations..I dont like to waste money in buying books..coz I read so many I would go bankrupt if I bought every book I wnted to read.
