Friday Blog Hop - July 14

Book Blogger Hop

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop ( is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! 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 that they may not know existed!

Each week, participating blogs are asked questions to post and answer on their websites.

This week’s question –

How/Where do you get your books?  Do you buy them or go to the library?  Is there a certain website that you use like Paperbackswap?

We tend to borrow most of our books from the library since we both work at the library and see all of the new titles coming in.  However, we both give in sometimes and go on book buying binges.  Right now Curlypow is holding a ton of my TBR pile books that I just can't get to.  One of my favourite places to go is  It is a Canadian company and shipping is reasonable.  The biggest thing for me is that there is NO CUSTOMS charges.  They have great deals on scratch and dent titles (sometimes 70 or 90% off) and also carry some autographed books.  Right now, all pocket books are 25% off.  Check it out and let me know when it becomes your new 'go to' bookstore....

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section. We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past.


  1. Bargain books are the best! Just hopping by, here's my hop:

  2. Happy Hopping ^-^

  3. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer –
