Rare or New Books? | Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Every week there’s a new book-themed question to be answered!


June 15th – 21st – You have just won a $100.00 Visa gift card. Will you spend the entire amount on a rare collector’s edition you have always wanted, or buy several newly-published books? 


I’m young and would spend it on newly-published books that I wanted to read. I want so badly to one day have a library with all the books close to my heart, but before that I am hopefully moving around, especially to university, and it would be hard bringing everything with me. While I have things I love, I am very aware that I don’t want to collect too many things. Who knows, in the next years I suddenly decide to just travel.

That gift card would be a dream though, it’s free books that I can pick out myself!

    This is a great question! I’d probably buy new books as well, there are so many I want right now😁

    Great answer! When I was younger, I had hundreds of books! But when I started moving around, they were just too much. I had to donate most of them, and moved around with my top favorites. Now that I’m more settled post-college and such, I’ve been working on my collection again 🙂

    Nice answer! I definitely know what you mean in terms of having to move around and not being able to take too many things with you. I actually just moved country (yet again) and I had to sell a lot of my books as I was unable to bring them with me, but they were all newly purchased. Whilst selling them was tough, I know that I’ll be able to purchase the books again in the future if I want to read them again, and that’s not quite the same as having to sell a special collector’s edition of course.

    I totally relate to your answer. I would too prefer to spend the money on a range of newly released books as I think it would give me the opportunity to expand my reading tastes further and experience new stories/authors. Plus, more books is never a bad thing.

    Feel free to check out my own answer if you wish!
