Follow Friday & Book Blogger Hop (4)

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee.
This week's question: 
What do I do when I'm not reading?

I either go to school, study at home, or attend school org meetings and school academic and social events. I'm a college freshie and I haven't been reading much these days (one book a week). I joined a political organization called Campus Alliance for Dedicated and Unified Action and the University of the Philippines Baguio Mountaineers    my heart rate's abnormal so the members decided I skip the 5, 10, and 15 kilometer-run training   ... add the Freshmen activities and parties until August that the school organized for us to feel welcomed as new scholars. Last week of July up to August first week will be our exam weeks. *sigh* That's why I have little time to check on blogs and to read and review books. Aside from school stuff, I've been doing a lot of house chores with my three housemates. I do the cooking, laundry, and dishes twice a week, unlike before when I'm at home with my family and slacking was one of my favorite hobbies. I'm also still trying to adjust to my new environment since my school is located in Baguio City, which is really far from Manila and home.

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word and to connect with other bookworms, make new friends, support each other, share our love of books! 
This week's question from Veronica who blogs at Read Books, Have Fun:
How/Where do you get your books? Do you buy them or go to the library? Is there a certain website you use like paperbackswap?

Most of my books are bought by me or sometimes my mom when the titles aren't available here and she orders from Book Depository for free shipping. I'm into newer YA books but unfortunately, our library doesn't have those. My other books were either gifted or won from giveaways while I get ARCs from Netgalley.

    Have a great weekend, here's our HOP! While your there check out our giveaway's The Vampire Diaries Complete Series, Vampire Shift (signed), Signed Forever Prize Packs!!

  9. I’m seeing a pattern of book acquisition here. After all, there are just so many places to get books and so many different ways to read them.

    It’s hard to beat the library for price and selection but it’s even harder to beat the convenience of browsing BN or Amazon from a Nook or Kindle, hitting a button and reading the book you picked in about sixty seconds.

    As usual, my answer to this week’s Book Blogger Hop question is all over the map. Hop on over and read my multipart answer –
