    Do you buy books exclusively online, or you still go to traditional bookstores for book-shopping?

    E-books are downloaded to your computer or mobile phone, but I still enjoy the store.

    I get way to much enjoyment from going to book stores to ever stop going. As a matter of fact its the best way to spend an afternoon going to new and used book stores looking for a new book to read. That being said most of what I do read comes from the local library mostly for cost reasons.

      Libraries are mines.  Our local library has the first copy of National Geographic, and guess what?  No photos.  The magazine added them later.  I did a hub on that.

    I only order online for paperbacks. I live in Brazil and books in English, even used ones, are expensive. My husband refuses to use a Kindle or Nook. I use Ebay or online bookstores.

      What a pity!  English books are very cheap in north America for obvious reasons.  Kindle won't stop me from going to traditional bookstores.   I buy books, have coffee and watch people.  I'm a writer, so i have to watch people.

    I do both.   With the online experience I like getting books through Amazon and shopping at Barnes and Nobel for traditional books.

      Yes. A mix of both.  The books i used in the question is my loot from Chapters on Friday 31 July, 2015.
