This week’s topic comes to us from HASINI @ BIBLIOSINI who asks—
Do you buy secondhand books? Why or why not? What are the benefits of buying secondhand? What are the cons of secondhand books? What do you recommend people do to better support secondhand bookstores?
As someone who is 100% a kindle reader, I wish I could, but I can’t.
In the BK days I used to buy a fair amount from Half-Price Books, and always enjoyed a Saturday afternoon at a local used-book store. But there really is no practical way to transfer that experience into a digital world, so I think that my days of buying used books are behind me.
What about you? Do you like used-book shopping?
