    In this age of the internet, do you still read books from the library or book shops?

    During my college days, I used to buy and read my favorite books from the local bookstore. I also frequented libraries just to read interesting titles. But now, I can read novels of my favorite authors on ebook format and sometimes on audio format.

    But whenever I passed on a bookstore or library, I would always flip on the books I'd love to read. I usually prefer hardbound over soft bounds. But since they took much space and worn out easily, I hardly now buy them and instead download them now online.

    What about you?

    I usually buy books at Book Sales. Mostly, they sell second-hand books that's why it's much cheaper compared to the local book stores. But when the book I desperately want to read is not there, I make sure to buy it even at a high price at book stores.

      Much of my books were loaned from friends, some I bought on the local bookstore and some I bought online. But nowadays, I frequented Goodreads and some book portals that offers free online readings and downloads. Amazon was also a good source but you need to review their books in exchange for the free reading.

        I buy them from Amazon.

          Yes Amazon is one good source of quality authors and books. I love the way Amazon encourages 'free reading' as away to promote their books online. I got to read some books even before they even get to be bestsellers. Really good value service from Amazon.

            Before in a library or book store but now in the internet since many books are free or easily to search.

              For hardbound books, I consult Crossword and another major book stall in the city. Usually, Crossword doesn't stock my favorites, but the latter more often than not does. Online, I always go with gutenberg.org or goodreads. I don't have a specific reading style. I won't mind reading either over the digital platform or hardbound books.

                Booksale if fun. I usually get my fave books there in a reasonable price. It may be second hand but the books are usually in good condition.

                  Essay writing is not something that is reserved exclusively for students, even though college is the place where most of the people write the bulk of their essays. Professors, lecturers, writers, and a lot of other professionals have to pen down essays from time to time.
