Where do you buy your books and how do you choose the books you buy?
Advertisements [?]
I'll start.

I read both fiction and non-fiction. I am also cheap. I read the NYT Book review. I am sent catalogues by Daedelus, Bas Bleu and Edward R Hamilton Bargain books. Lately I buy most of my books from Deadelus - I like their catalogue, I like their website, I love their prices, and I can get a giant box of books both fiction and non-fiction, often in hardcover for just a ridiculously low price.

Bas Bleu seems to have me by demographic - Jane Austen, PBS type, perhaps a bit twee, though fighting it. IF they have unearthed a book that I know I would probably like, I do feel duty bound to order it through them rather than seeking out something cheaper on Amazon.

I'm much more an online buyer than physical bookstore buyer although if I do enter one, I am sure to leave with a purchase, usually from the "what's new in paperback" nonfiction section.
