RTW-Book buying

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.


Where do you buy most of your books? No one is judging.


I got a Kindle last year for Christmas so a lot of my book purchases have been amazon e-books this year.


There also happens to be a half price books on the way home from my chiropractor so I tend to stop there on the way home from my chiro appts.


I also go to the Wild Rumpus.  It is a wonderful children's bookstore in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis. The selection for kid and teen lit is amazing.

Cool! Looks like you have some great options, Carrie. I might have to taste the e-book Kool-Aid soon. :)

That Wild Rumpus shop looks super cute =) I have an e-reader too, but I mostly use it when I'm too impatient (read: lazy) to leave the house and buy an actual book. It's also good for traveling.

That store looks adorable!
I might join the e-reader owner ranks soon. Still undecided :-)

Wild Rumpus - dude. I would go to that store just based on its name! Oh, and I blogged at YA Confidential yesterday about Graduation Projects and I featured one of my students (also one of the SPIES) and she did hers on quilting. I thought you might like to check it out!

I love the name of that bookstore! So clever. I would love to have a children's bookstore near me. I think the selection and atmosphere at a store that only sells children's and teen books would be great.

Hooray for the Wild Rumpus! (I live in the Twin Cities, too. :) )
