Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link -- or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.
This Week's Topic:
Where do you buy most of your books? No one is judging!
Well...I try to buy most of my books from books stores, but some of them *cough* Barnes & Noble *cough* don't stock the books I want. I'm still a little peeved that I didn't see Blood Red Road on their shelves, but...maybe I'm being too hard on them. There are a lot of books out there, and they can't house them all in stores.
The truth is, I'm really grateful for Barnes & Noble because like many of you book lovers out there, I'm a rebel reader of actual books...you know the ones with paper pages. Oh yeah, those. I'm still not sold on the e-book. I can't bring myself to buy a Kindle or a Nook. I don't really have anything against the e-book lovers. Whatever floats your boat. In fact, Oppression will be out as an e-book as well, but I just love the feel, the smell, the weight, the look of a book. I think I always will. I'll be a squinty old lady trying to read the faded pages of old paperbacks and my kids and grand kids will marvel at the antique..."You don't know what you're missing," I'll gripe at them.
So, my go-to is Barnes & Noble. Next is Amazon.com (for the real deal).
What about you? E-book or Real Book? Book store or online?
Hi! I’m the author of the YA paranormal series, CHILDREN OF THE GODS.
I have two boys (ages 2 & 4) which has done wonders for my sound effect skills. I'm now an expert at missile launching & explosion noises...Also, I'm pretty decent at wielding a lightsaber and building lego ships. So be prepared for some kid blogging in between the book updates. My days are spent taking care of munchkins, writing, and running Acorn Publishing, most likely in my pajamas.
