Where do you buy your books from?
Susan #get the book
Amazon Smith’s & Charity Shops.
There isn’t a book shop where I live, so charity shops. But mostly, I use my Kindle.
Amazon for kindle books. There isn’t a local book shop where I live, only Asda and charity shops. .
Anywhere really but I suppose in order it would be Charity, Ebay/Amazon, then local books shops and if I get to Edinburgh then the obscure old world shops
From authors for gifts
Amazon for my kindle. Love exploring charity shops for books
Wherever a french book catches my eyes… For the books in VO I totally want, I made a list for my annual trip in England and buy them if I see them in shops… Or Amazon if I can’t wait… Only paperbacks in this home ☺️
Amazon for kindle. Large high street stores and charity shops for paperbacks
Amazon for new and used books and Kindle books. And Better World Books for used books.
Amazon, Charity Shops, but mostly I borrow from the library
Charity shops mostly.
Amazon for kindle. I used to love a mooch round Waterstones before that though ?
Charity shops or second hand book shops
local book shop(over 100 yrs in business)where possible
bookshops or amazon
Mostly Amazon although I tend to get second hand from there or occasionally book shops or charity shops.
Amazon for my kindle. I use the local library as well
Amazon and some from authors .
I have to say that recently , due to you guys, I have been introduced to so many new authors. As a person who likes to start at the beginning, I tend to buy off the net. This is because you can’t always get the book in the shops. I do have to say that once I am in an established “series” I will buy in book shops.
Amazon and my local second hand book store
Amazon, my local bookshop and when I get the chance a trip to Waterstones in Carlisle.
Asda Tesco morrisons eBay Amazon charity shops xx

Amazon for Kindle.
Amazon for my kindle and authors for books
Supermarkets, Bookstores and Amazon.
Amazon and Waterstones
Mostly Amazon so only they know I am an addict. I buy from Waterstones now and again. 🙂
Mostly charity shops but sometimes Amazon + my friend and I always swap
Any where I see one I fancy…
Charity shops, supermarkets and amazon mainlyxx
I try to get my new ones from small independent bookshops. Currently buying them from Print Point in Bute 🙂
Mostly Amazon, but supermarkets when I’m in the UK.
Anywhere!! Love the occasional trip to Waterstones x
Mostly charity shops and also Amazon for my kindle (but I ALWAYS wait for the price to drop before purchasing)
Direct from some authors. Amazon and local independent bookshop, I don’t buy any from charity shops
Amazon and The Works
Amazon for kindle and most books, although I did just save almost £20 on the price of a new book (Christmas gift) by buying via Abe Books instead. Always worth googling for best price once decision is made 🙂
abe can be good for those hard-to-get titles – though they are now owned by Amazon I believe.
Crikey forgot about the works !!!!
waterstones, smiths, indie bookshops, the works, lit events, amazon, charity shops, kindle
Waterstones or amazon
Amazon supermarkets or The Works ?
A number different places. If I see a book like I will just buy it. I also order in line ftom Amazon as they have good deals too.
Waterstones @ Leamington Spa Or Amazon
Amazon , The Works but I miss Borders!
NetGalley ? or if I’m forced Amazon as I very rarely read physical books
Hi Annette What is “NetGalley” is it anything like “BookBub” or “Freebooksy” that send daily emails of good reads?
NetGalley is a site where you can request advanced reader copies of books from publishers in return for a review. Take a look, there are always books that are read now to build up your review ratio. Most of the popular authors use the site. You do get a few knock backs when you first start but after a while, you get more approvals
Waterstones, Amazon, whsmith, the works and every so often a wee charity book gets bought when donating xxx
Amazon, Waterstones and The Works mainly x
Waterstones, Amazon, Abacus Books (a fabulous second hand book shop in a town near me) and Sharston Books (a unique second hand book shop). I have been known to drive to Alnwick just to go to the book shop there. Also charity shops
Mainly Amazon, but I do sometimes buy from Waterstones, charity shops or second hand shops.
Anywhere I get tempted!! ?? Recently so lucky and excited to be able to buy author signed copies though! Much prefer to buy from the author or small bookshops if I can. I just found an independent book shop not too far from me that also has a little tea and cake shop at the back – a perfect afternoon in every way!! ?
Amazon Kindle, Amazon for paperbacks and sometimes Amazon Marketplace
Amazon for Kindle . The others mate like rabbits and have now completely overrun the book hutch. I miss the days of borders when I could go in, take a book off the shelf, read for about an hour in one of their comfy chairs, and then purchase the book to continue reading at home.
Yes? I used to love Borders.
Amazon for kindle and paper backs but I check out Tesco and Asda for deals on paper backs too
The Works, Waterstones or charity stalls mainly
Anywhere and everywhere!
Amazon, Waterstones, charity shops, anywhere that sells them lol
Amazon for Kindle, Tesco or Asda, the Works, library
The works,amazon,charity shops+library.
BookBub, Freebooksy and Amazon
Amazon for kindle and all my paperbacks come from charity shops. I carry a book around with a list of all the books I want and fortunately when I am in UK there are a lot of charity shops in the town I stay in.
Amazon, The Works, supermarkets. Smiths, charity shops, table top sales. I love a bargain but try get a fair proportion of them new as I know authors don’t get royalties for 2nd hand sales.
Charity shops and car boot sales
Amazon for my E-books and the local bookshop on the High Street for my proper books.
Amazon, mostly, but that’s only because I live in the back of beyond with no good bookshops within a quick drive. Sometimes charity shops, but I do like to buy where I’m making sure the author will get something – even if it’s not as much as they deserve! There is a small WHS near us, and sometimes I buy from them.
Amazon, Waterstones, indie bookshops when near one, library occasionally. I have also bought from indie publishers like Fahrenheit Press who sell ebooks quite reasonable prices, print books too. Also some authors do too.
I only have kindle so amazon
I use Library and haunt secondhand book shops and fairs
Amazon. I read on Kindle.
The Works, Amazon and occasionally WHSmith.

Amazon mainly, I’m ashamed to say as I think they’ve monopolised the market.
Buy all mine off Amazon
Amazon and B&N
Amazon & The Works publishers outlet shops
Amazon for new along with whsmiths, or various charity shops for anything else
