Jonathan Terrington (thewritestuff) | 390 comments Out of interest do you guys prefer to buy things in stores or online? I love going into bookstores and finding bargains for instance but sometimes you have to look online and bargains can be found but it's not the same feeling. Some items I prefer to buy online but on the whole going to a shop to look is a bit of an adventure haha!

I prefer to get stuff in-store, but sometimes it's just easier and cheaper to get it online, or to get an e-copy of the book, online, so...
I do both,

Lydia I like going and buying stuff in person a little more. It's more fun browsing through a real shelf as opposed to a virtual one. Although, I do seem to find better bargains online.

Jonathan Terrington (thewritestuff) | 390 comments Yeah, it's easier to find things online for sure. But nothing beats going into a bookstore and just browsing to see what gems you can unearth. Today I was waiting for friends and saw this bookstore (but I had no cash - it's called Allbooks4Less for anyone in Australia who wants to know) and it had loads of books for under 10 dollars. Like as in good quality new books and classics.

Lydia That's really cool; it's hard to find cheap bookstores. I do go to one that has really good sales. Like, I bought two books there for six dollars.

That sounds like a book store I found in Victoria (obviously also in Australia) called "The Book Grocer". I went in there and everything was $15 or less and there were heaps of books! Unfortunately, I had no money with me that day and haven't been back there since :(
