    lol, the best thing i ever did was swear off buying books brand new unless it was absolutely for school. i love used bookstores, and allow everyone else to buy me new.

    nylusmilk: good for you! i don’t buy books at retail price either, because in malaysia we have plenty of book warehouse sales, which happen about 4 times a year, and about half a dozen bookstores do this!

    i like to think that in doing so, i’m doing my part for the environment. also, i have a pretty strong belief that if a book was bought and read by someone else it is at least worth my time.

    plus, there is just something about the smell of used books that is almost well… ummm erotic.

    nylusmilk: i tried being environmental-conscious, but i think it’s just not a cause i’m naturally passionate about. though i would definitely get a secondhand book over a new one any time, with a few exceptions of really good books i’d like to own a brand new copy of.

    i like the familiar smell of old books, but if it’s too overpowering i just have a sneezing fit! i get that a lot when i venture into my college library.

    Absolutely excellent. I know a lot of people that would be saved by this… 😉

    nylusmilk: use it in your blog and spread it to your readers! i myself got it from god-knows-where. 😉
