Blog Hop & Follow Friday 47

 Books Reviewed This Week: 
Between the Land and the Sea (Marina's Tales #1) - Derrolyn Anderson

Waiting on Wednesday: Perception (Clarity #2) - Kim Harrington

Thank You Everyone who is stopping by for the Blog Hop and thank you to crazy-for-books for hosting the hop!
Book Blogger Hop

 How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

Oh, wow. I get my books from all sorts of places. Yes, I do go to the library. I am lucky enough to have a local library that has an excellent selection of books. Honestly, it is very rare that they don't have what I am looking for. The YA selection in particular is fabulous. I also use the goodreads bookswap - I like it because the buyer pays the shipping, not the person giving the book. I also buy a lot of books from amazon, because I get free two day shipping (amazon student/prime). There prices are usually unbeatable, especially with free shipping. I also buy from booksamillion (they have great bargain books & free shipping on orders $25 and up) sometimes and always hit up my local bookstores. Then, for books that aren't available in the U.S., I use the Book Depository. I also check out library sales and other events like that. Oh and for ebooks, I buy from Barnes & Noble (I have a nook) and Smashwords (they have every format imaginable). Honestly, I get my books from everywhere.

I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!       

Question: What do you do when you are not reading?
 Well... let's see. I am a big sports fan and I try to be relatively active. I do a lot of bike riding - I just really enjoy being outside. I also dabble in video editing (you can check out my youtube account here).

Hopping through. I'm lucky to have a great library too. I haven't check out goodreads bookswap. That sounds awesome.

Hello! :D
I really really envy you a little... I can't use a bike, and believe me, I've tried... but every single time I try to ride one somehow I always find myself in the floor... sigh...

BTW, I'm a new follower!

This is my Follow Friday

And while you are there check my GIVEAWAYS tab, I have two and both of them are international! :D

I haven't ridden a bike in SO LONG. I really want to, but I need a new bike. We also live on kind of a main road so I would need to drive somewhere to ride my bike (or run/walk), which sort of sucks. lol

New follower! :)

Here's my follow friday and book blog hop for this week.

I think I still own a bike but which relative may have it still is unknown. ;-) New follower!

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

You are a very eclectic book getter :)

I'm not the biggest fan of watching sports (I tend to find it a little boring, depending on what it is and how intense the game is!), but I LOVE playing them! With how hyper I always am, I like to be active as much as possible! :)

Hope you have an awesome weekend!

I love your blog banner! Seriously cool.
Er last time I got on a bike I managed to slowly crash into the only other person around for miles. Clearly not my bag! I'll stick to waking.
