A LONG time, actually. My grandmother is a HUGE reader and we like a lot of the same authors.. so she buys, and gives them to me! lol.. the last time I got a book from the bookstore was a few months ago, but it was Lexi's.

Mine usually come from Ebay or car boot sales.

However I think the last one I bought in a store was a Guitar Tutor book last year which I bought with my birthday money.

Couple of weeks ago, I got Her fearful symmetry, by the same author who wrote Time traveler's wife. It was 65% off, so only about 10 dollars for a hard cover book. The bookstore was closing so they had a big sale.

I try not to buy books anymore b/c I just do not have the room to house them. I mostly borrow from the library nowadays. I've been getting the kids books from library book sales. But the last book I actually bought from a bookstore was back in June when I bought I Love You Forever by Robert Munsch for a friend's baby shower.

Wow.. hmm.. usually mine are loan from friends or my my mom and sister gives me books. The boys get books in teh mail from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. (its soo great!)

The last ones I bought came from goodwill. They were xfiles. I believe the last ones I actually bought from a bookstore were the first xfile books I came across and they were on a sale cart in front of the bookstore.. so does that count? lmao. That was like.. uh.... 6 mths ago?
