How often do you check out books from the library?

How many do you usually check out at one time? I checked out six a week ago. Just started numbers 4 and 5.

  • We go once a week to get books for my four year old. I buy my books at Goodwill because I like to build a library. I'm getting a Kindle for Christmas, so I'll be reading most of my books on there soon!

  • Only one at a time about every 2 weeks. I only read at night, and sometimes I buy a book when I do my grocery shopping..

  • I never do. I have piles and piles of books that need read yet, and it takes me weeks or months to get through most books, so I'm buying them faster than I can possibly read them. My DH and Kids usually get a few books a week though.

  • We go and the kids check out books (depending on the child of how many) i look and really don't find much....but the magazines at 4 for $1.00. Or I will just go to Barnes and Noble and buy a book i want there. and then donate it when i'm done. I read too slow or have too many things going here at home to worry about returning a book on time.

  • I put current books on hold and then when they become available, I get an email and go pick it up. I read lots and lots of popular current novels for free!

  • We go every week and usually about a dozen books or so each time.

  • We go to the preschool story time every Thursday so we get maybe 8-10 kids' books. DH and I get our books from Amazon or Borders because I don't dare take my kids into the grown-ups section unless I know exactly what I'm looking for and where to find it. I'd love to spend an hour or two alone at the library though, that sounds wonderful.

  • If I'm doing a college paper, 5 or 6 at a time. If not, I check out music CDs of anything new that has come in.
