I love reading books though I am not a huge collector of books.  I always borrow books from the libraries, read them and return.  Though, occasionally if I really love the book, I buy it!

I mainly borrow from the library... sometimes if there's a really good book available that I will read over and over, I buy it.

I love buying books and adding them to my collection. I used to visit the library earlier and I still do, but not as often...

Library visits were more often while in college , but now with work and with my job allowing me to blow my money, I splurge on books and my book collection...

I wish to have huge library of my own some day....hmmmmmmmmm Day Dreaming

I mostly borrow books but if there's a book I really really like then I buy a copy for myself. Recently I read a book that I very much liked so I've started collecting books by that authour because I like them.

At the moment though I'm member of loadsa libraries, I'm not using it much.... I always prefer to buy books, whether I read them once or 20 times... Books are something which will always be there, 20 years later too...

And it's good to have a collection, coz then you can swop and circulate among friends...

I like buying books, tho, my mom thinks that its a waste of money cuz you can always check them out of hte library. My mom doesnt really let me buy books, even if i use my own money, (earned from a job). So i check them out from the library. But if such a book comes across me that i love, i beg my dad...and then sometimes he lets me buy, sometimes he says no...

i cherish books and to me a house without books is empty. i buy books. it drives my parents crazy that i have so many. i just cant help it. it's calling...a great book is worth a million bucks!!
i also prefer to buy them becasue i like to write in my books, underline my favorite line, or make comments about what i thought! then when i go back and look at even just the comments, the lovely adventure comes back to me! it's interesting, people how have borrowed books from me, they also make their own comments and it's fun to read what they thought!

no libraries for me!!
