|Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and The Bookish.|
This Week's Topic: FREEBIE!
Dropping by the bookstore is like a hobby to me. Sometimes I just like being there, staring at the books I plan to get or eyeing on books I'll check out when I get home. But the best thing I like about going to the bookstore is buying books (like DUH!).
I sometimes tell myself that I'm picky about the books I buy but sometimes I doubt that that's true. Sometimes I just buy books on a whim. Sometimes reviews make me want books. Sometimes popularity makes me buy books. ANYWAY, I found myself thinking about what books do I really buy THEN my mind went to how do I choose the books I buy THEN to my book buying quirks.
SO here're ten things I do when I go to the bookstore! LOL.
 I instantly go to the YA section of the bookstore THEN scifi-mystery-thriller THEN classics THEN general fiction. That order. ALWAYS! Unless I'm looking for a particular book.
 I checkout EVERY SINGLE BOOK on the store before decided on what to buy. Again, this happens unless I already have something in mind. But sometimes I just checkout stuff anyway in case I there're new books.
 I don't always read book blurbs when I'm in the bookstore. It's just because they're annoyingly long! and there's a ton of books on the store! and I have so little time in my hands! If I've never read the book's blurb or a review at home, I just checkout the cover, the title, browse the blurb if it's so freaking long, or just quickly check it out on goodreads :P
 I unconsciously stay in the bookstore for at least 1hr. How else can I check every book if I'll stay less than an hour? (well unless I drop by that bookstore every single week or every other day or whatever).
 I only buy on local bookstores - physical stores and one online manga store. Other than those, just no. although I really want to buy on BookDepository or Amazon or somewhere (
 Books with fancy titles ALWAYS catch my attention. It's a really bad thing!
 Beautiful book covers attract me so much. All of us are attracted to them, right? XD
 When I can buy the complete books of a series I've been seeing people rave about, I just buy them. Even though I've never read a single book. Happened to me. Bad thing. But still... I feel so tempted to buy the complete series of books whenever I can.
 I just buy 1 or 2 books at a time unless there's a sale going on or it's a manga order.
 When I saw a book I like and I can't buy them that time, I'll put them at the back of the shelf so people won't find them. LOL.
