TGIF: Buy or Borrow?

TGIF is a weekly meme created and hosted by GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.

This week on Denim-Jacket Librarian Dishes:

Buy or Borrow: Where do your books that you read come from? The bookstore? The library? Do you prefer to own a book or have it on loan?

My Answer: The majority of my books come from bookstores, usually Half-Price Books because they are awesome in the variety and price departments. However, if I see a book that I'm not sure about owning, I will check my library to see if we have a copy. I'm less likely to purchase a book if I know my library has a copy, thus why I keep a list of titles my system has to check out in my library account. Generally, I prefer to own a book, but having some on loan both eases my own bookshelves and helps me feel less guilty if I decide to stop reading it and return it.
