If there was this book, and you wanted it extremely badly, how and where would you get it?

I know, I just did it to annoy you. And I'd get my books from a bookstore. Power to Waterstones!

I'm a weird person when it comes to buying books.

I like to go to the bookstore and pick out my own copy out of the other books. Its like I chose it with my own eyes you know?

It's mine. Out of all the others, I picked this one, now I am going to read it.

I usually only do that when my favorite author comes out with a new book, otherwise I just order from Amazon.com.

The guy who's family owns Waterstones? No, I'm not, but I wish I was! Why did you think it was me?

Well, you are very welcome to suck up to me instead. But I do envy him now. I want to own a bookstore, or have a family member who owns a bookstore. And a successful one.

I get books I really want from the bookshops. Waterstones!
Other books I check out in the library first so I don't waste my money. Though some books (Harry Potter) don't need to be library-read first because they just are inatntly the best and already on my shelf the day it comes out.
