Booking Through Thursday : Doomsday

btt button

This week, Booking Through Thursday asks:  
What would you do if, all of a sudden, your favorite source of books was unavailable?

That's not possible or at least not when it concerns me and my reading / book-buying habits. I don't have ONE favorite place. For I buy from everywhere - Barnes and Noble, Borders, Amazon, Half Price Books, Library sales, garage sales, etc etc. I'm a book addict and I get my fix from any possible place I can. As a last resort I've been known to beg / raid bookshelves of friends and family. While I don't do it anymore but once upon a time I even used to go to out-of-town Book exhibitions or search out book happenings online and even drive a couple of hours to get there.

Any place I've ever been to for longer than a day, I've somehow managed to find the local library. The most miserable stay was when we moved to a new place and there wasn't a library within sight. I almost went crazy that year. But, hypothetically speaking, if I did have just ONE source of books which shut down, and there were no other book sources available, then I'd just re-read the books I have. That crazy year I was just speaking of? I re-read every single book I had - 10 or even 200 times. And you know what? I discovered something new with almost each re-read. Something I'd either overlooked or some nuance that had bypassed me or something. It's a great way to re-discover your favorite books.

What are your thoughts?
