Actually, although the online ordering is pretty great, the REAL kick comes when you see the package on the front porch. ;)

I love ordering books. And receiving them. And opening the parcel. And then reading them! And I love reading lots of book review sites, and Goodreads, to get even more out of the whole choosing, buying, reading experience.

I agree. Having books arrive in print form is more important to me than the ordering process.

I get the bulk of my books online - and that, despite the size of my waiting-to-be-read pile - is a couple of books a week, but my favorite way to buy books is in a bricks and mortar bookstore, where I can smell the books, touch them and stumble on surprise treasures. I also love browsing through used and antiquarian bookstores. Nothing beats finding a vintage treasure, or a book I once read and have been looking for ever since.

As a librarian, I used to order most of the books, etc. for my library. As a retired librarian, I now love ordering books for myself. LOVE to see those packages come in. A frequent trip to our local Barnes and Noble always makes my day, too. Pam

I love to sit and read through reviews, blogs, book lists and even the online catalog at my local library. And usually with a cup of good coffee at my elbow. After I complete a particularly onerous project (like an annual physical) I visit the library or a bookstore, where I allow myself as much time as I want to browse the shelves. Am I a book nerd? Oh, yes indeed! (and proud of it too!)

What is not to love about ordering, receiving, opening and the final thrill of reading.

Here's my idea of a perfect book nerd day - spending hours at a gigundo used book sale buying books (just had one of those in Princeton) then going home and spending the rest of the day reading.

I love ordering and receiving books, but I also love going to the library to browse and then leaving with a whole stack of books that previously weren't even on my radar!

I love books and I cannot lie. It always makes my day better to find that package in my mailbox.
