I usually buy books. Or, if it is a very expensive book and some of my friends have it, I just ask them to give it to me. Or, if it is a very interesting book and my friends have it. Basically, I haven't been to libraries, like, for many years now. I like collecting books and buying them is like a hobby of mine or something like that.
One bright day, late at night,
Two dead boys rose up to fight.
Back to back, they faced each other,
Drew their swords, and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise
And came and killed those two dead boys.
If you don't believe this lie is true
Just ask the blind man -- he saw it too.

If I want a book badly, I buy it, but usually I can't afford to buy books. I don't go to the library much these days... So usually I do actually borrow books off friends :L

Hahahaha. I get it from either the bookstore or from the library...
People assume that time
is a strict progression of cause to effect,
but actually, from a nonlinear,
non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like
a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey...

For some reason, I don't like libraries. I always feel like their books are old and not very interesting. Plus, I like owning my own copies so I can read it over and over again. I have a nook, but my mom stole it from me, so I just read books now.

I would really wait for its sale on the bookshop near my place. Or I would encourage my rich friend to buy that book and afterwards Iíll borrow it from him. Well, I want to spend less and save more money.

Usually the library or a book store. Sometimes on the internet. I don't really borrow books from friends, but my friends are always borrowing stuff from me. And it kind of depends where I see it first too.

Sorry, knuckle sandwiches aren't part of my diet
