Review Book Copies – Tell Me Something Tuesday

Hi, so I am fully aware I missed last week’s Tell Me Something Tuesday. This was purely due to the fact I had nothing to add to the conversation. This week, however, I will happily throw in my two pence regarding review copies and how I get my books in general.

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics is being discussed from books to blogging. This week’s theme:

Where do you get your review books?

It’s no secret that I LOVE BOOKS. All kind of books- new, pre-loved, eBooks, audio books, picture books etc. But where do I get my review copies from?

There are currently 3 main sources:
  1. Thrift stores (local as well as online)
  2. NetGalley
  3. Authors/publicists

NetGalley has certainly got me more into eBooks. Originally I didn’t think I’d convert (see post here). But I do enjoy the convenience of an eReader now. Also, I’ve been lucky to have been sent some books directly by the author or the publicist, and for that I am most grateful.

However the majority of the books in my home library I have actually bought myself. The goal is to fill my whole house with books, although my other half isn’t very enthusiastic about this idea! I prefer to shop  either online or a local thrift store. Because you know I’d not be able to afford living if all the books were brand new, WHY are they so expensive?! But every oso often I do like to treat myself to a trip to Waterstones and get a brand new shiny book.

Where do you get your books from? Do you prefer to get new books or give a chance to pre-loved books?
