How I Read So Much: Part 1

I am asked so many times how i read as much as i read.

So here i am giving away my secrets ;)
(i doubt they will impress anyone thou)

In Part 1 i will share: Where i get my books!

Ready for crazy secret #1!?

I only own about 10 books!
That's it.
Maybe 12 but that's a high estimate

Crazy right. So now you're thinking, wait how do you read 500+ books then!?


Where i live, we have a county library system

Which has 5 different branches, so that's a ton of copies of books. I put holds on ones from across the county and they bring it to the one by my house. They have pretty much every book i ever want to read, thou it takes about a month from the release date til they get it in, so that stinks.

Then the city i live in has it's own library as well!

The city library is more of a local hang out, it's right by the high school, so no one really goes there to get books, but they make so much off their snack bar that they get all the new releases like within a week of the release date and no hold lines since no one reads there.

And to top that, both use apps for e-books/audio!

County library uses:
where i get 6 loans for e-books/audio books each month

where i have unlimited loans for kindle/audio books


which has unlimited e-book loans

City library uses:

Which i get 8 loans each month


which has unlimited audio book loans.

I also receive ARCs from NetGalley and receive digital copies of books from winning my book club's challenge each month.

So that's it in a nutshell of where i get all the books i read!

Did that impress you?!


  1. I need to use my library more. I end up treating the used bookstore like a library. The best part about that is I get to keep the books I really like. The ones I don’t like get traded for new books.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. That's a great idea as well, we only really have Half Priced Books and they are still too expensive for me.

      Thanks for reading :)
