Thursday Memes


This week's question:
All other things being equal–do you prefer used books? Or new books? (The physical speciman, that is, not the title.) Does your preference differentiate between a standard kind of used book, and a pristine, leather-bound copy?
My Answer:
Definitely new books.  I love the smell of opening a new book for the first time with the spine of the book not bent and turning a crisp page to the very end of the book.  And I will only purchase a used book if it is in good condition.

From Lori's site:
It struck me recently how much time I spend on this computer every day, blogging, chatting or playing games on Facebook, emailing friends and relatives, making cards and calendars, etc. etc. etc.
We depend on each other for book reviews, giveaways, encouragement, friendship, but how well do we really know each other?
So that is what this meme is all about, getting to know each other.
1. Do you wear perfume, body spray, etc. If yes what are you favorite scents/brands?

2. How many pillows are on your bed?
3. If you could be any character in a fairy tail, who would you be?

I was wondering if she was still doing this. I haven't participated for a while because of the move and everything, but I wanted to start up again....

I love new books, but I will buy used books in decent condition. I buy books almost anywhere I find them. I'm really not to picky.
