Friday Memes: Getting Books and Non-Reading Activities?

Book Blogger HopBlogger Hop Question of the Week
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you paperbackswap?
This answer has changed so much over the past six months since I started this here blog. BTB (Before the Blog), I got my books from the Sony Ebook Store or Amazon.com. ATB(After the blog), I get my books from:
  1. The publisher/author/Netgalley: these are all book review requests.  I love it, but I think I'm going to stop during school. I get so behind and feel so bad about it.
  2. Amazon.com: I'M ADDICTED!! This is where I get all my impulse buys.
  3. Houston Public Library online (this is the most awesome thing ever!): I can borrow books from the library onto my Ereader.  It is super awesome because I can get the newest titles which I don't usually purchase on my own because they are more expensive.

I don't use book swapping sites.  I give my books to friends or hoard them on my bookshelf.
