Do you prefer buying the books you want to read or be a member of a good library?
I never bother with libraries. If there is a book I want then I will buy it even as a hardcopy or as an ebook. Usually I want to keep the books I read, and if not I'll take them to the charity shop. I can't be bothered having to read them within a certain time and then having to go out to take them back.
I prefer buying the books I want to read. Mainly because when I was 12, I found a book at the library that I loved. I had to give it back and never remembered the name. Now I'm still wishing I could find that book.
I know! Oh that brings back the memory of sooo many books.
I do like the idea of building up our own private library too so that I can go back and read one in the middle of the night if I want to.
I agree with you. Happily, I have three different bookcases for all of them. A personal library, a textbook library, and a show-off library.
I don't like to buy books unless they are reference-type books or beautifully bound specimens. I have a Kindle for library downloads but usually get paperbacks and HB novels from the YMCA shelf or trade w/ friends.
I actually collect leather-bound books for a personal library, so I happen to prefer buying books. If this didn't happen to be one of my hobbies, I would prefer to use the public library.

Do people nowadays prefer to read in the Internet rather than actual books?Do people read books at all nowadays? I noticed that not many people prefer to go to the library for books, what do you think?

I've seen a few forum threads/questions about reading lately - asking what types of books you like to read, or how many you've read in the past year, etc....but none have simply asked: what book are you reading right...
