Day 5: Describe How You Shop for Books
I work at a bookstore. An awesome, independent chain right in my little city(Yes, Best. Job. Ever!) I used to manage there but left(then returned) as a Sales Associate so I could focus my time on my other passions and endeavours. Although I do browse used bookstores, Chapters, and Book Depository weekly, most of my book shopping comes from my store(and a 20% employee discount sure helps, too!)
My shopping consists of browsing the new stock we get in, and putting it in my hold drawer/cupboard before it even hits the shelves. Thankfully, our store is a discount store(but all the books are new) so we sell amazing books for almost half the price. Most of the books I buy every 2 weeks are no more than 7.99. My $50 book allowance can definitely go a long way!
When not shopping at the store I work at. I usually spend a Saturday Morning browsing the little local shops in my downtown and uptown area.
I usually take money earned through affiliate programs to go towards by Book Depository purchases. Or I'll use them to pay for shipping when sending out giveaways!
