Friday Blog Hop- Shopping!

Book Blogger Hop


The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-For Book and  is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question is:  

 "If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?"
Holy crow, this is a hard question. I have a few books that I've read and loved but don't have a copy of I would like to think I would finally grab those but I am a total impulse purchaser. If I was on the spot I would forget what I need and end up grabbing a handful of books whose covers or titles caught my eye and whose synopsis didn't turn me off. Unless it's for a class or something definite I usually walk into Barnes & Noble planning to buy one thing and walking out with something pretty that stood out to me. I suck like that. I apologize for the non-answer but I wouldn't know till I was standing in line at the checkout.

Thanks for hopping by and leave a link so I can return the visit.

Hi there! New follower from the blog hop :)

My answer came from my wishlist on bn.com, but I'd probably end up with a few impulse buys too when I actually ended up in the store! Shiny new covers are hard to resist :)

I admire your spontaneity! It gives you a sense of freedom to be pulled in by something that you didn't plan to get & it allows us to move outside our comfort zone. It also reaks havoc on our bank account :D Happy hopping!

My Friday post.

Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N. That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?

The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list -- and it's not as predictable as you may think!

Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list - http://www.howardsherman.net

Happy Hop Friday!

Love your blog design! New follower :) I sometimes go for the impulse, if I don't have something specific in mind, (which usually I have at least ONE book I know I want lol).

Hi! Just stopping by on the Hop. I'm your newest follower.
B&N is sooo addicting. Its one of my favorite stores. And I know what you mean...sometimes i go into B&N for ONE book and walk out with several others.
Have a great weekend :)

I will not buy on impulse for new books! those are carefully thought of before hand. In a second hand bookshop whatever catches my eye and if I am lucky what is on my list. That is then grabbed quickly.

Happy weekend.

Hey - just hoppin by! Hope you have a great weekend! Happy reading! Stop by The Wormhole and see what I think I would spend my money on! (I totally shop like you! I had to go to my wishlist and choose to answer the question!)

K W said...

Totally understand your non answer! I wouldn't have been able to answer this myself without my Amazon Wishlist that I recently filled with suggestions from friends! I always walk into B&N and look for a great cover... glad to hear Im not the only one :) Its part of the fun!

Stop by to see my book choices if you have a chance
