I'm a library user as well. I can't tell you how much money it's saved me!

Great questions - but tough! Most of these depend on my mood. I like meat to my books, but occasionally I like a fun light read....

Even the new or used question... at first I thought, definitely new... but then there is something to a great used book too... they show the love of being handed off to someone else as a gift of love. :)

Neat idea! I don't know that I could answer as succintly as you did. I'll have to try with the notion that you have to choose one, no explanations.

Looking forward to your review of the new Rebecca Wells.

I love the library. It keeps me from buying so many books until after I've read them.

Great answers! The name of my blog is "Well-Mannered Frivolity" - can you guess what my answer to number 1 was? It was hard to choose between some of the answers this week though...
