For me, the easiest way to get a book is from the internet. Now, I am looking for a book with topic: How to win a negotiation. I've searched on the internet about the book, and I found there are several different books with the same title. It makes me confuse to choose the best one. How about you friends, how do you finding a best book for you? Do you searching for book online, buying e-book or do you prefer to buy paper book? Nowadays there are so many books with the same title, but it makes me confuse to choose the best one. What is your ways to look that a book is really good?

If you' like to read fiction book, I think The Casual Vacancy is a good one to read. The author is J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter books. Yeah, thanks a lot for suggesting me to read the book reviews first before buying it. Good idea.

I know nowadays reading online is possible and it's free.But i prefer the feeling to touch a book and to feel the paper about the book.To be honest,to buy one book is really more expensive than read online but thing is we enjoyed.

Yes,now I have been searching a book on thugs and pindaries who were robbers in India in the eighteenth century.Till now I have not got it.In fact,I am fond of traditional,printed books.I had first tried to get my desired book from bookstores,but it was not available.Then I tried to find it online.Had I found it there,I would have sent order to buy it online.I would go for ebooks only when it is not available in printed form.

Nice. But some people, including me, are prefer to buy ebook, because ebook will not obsolete and we can back up to prevent loss or file damage. Besides those advantages, we can save a lot of, even thousands ebooks in a laptop, pc, or tablet. Can you imagine if thousands of books you have, and you need to arrange your printed books in a very wide cabinets, you also need huge amount of budgets to build your own library. For me efficiency and portability are priority.

If I am looking for a non-fiction book about a specific topic I often check the library first. I borrow the books that they have about my topic or some of them. At home I have the chance to look carefully at the books, flip through the pages and read some of the headlines before I decide which book I want to buy. Sometimes I read the short describtion of the books on the website that belongs to my local library and that also helps when I have to choose a book. If I can't find any library books about my topic I visit the online bookshops and read the descriptions there. I also try to find some reviews on other sites. I prefer to read paper books. I wouldn't say that I would never read an ebook, but when I am able to choose between both options I usually choose a paper book.

I like to think that I still prefer reading book on paper, but nowadays books are so expensive and in the place where I live now there are no more of those discount bookstores I used to frequent, so I'm reading more and more ebooks these days. Not only are they easier to find but I could even download ones that are free, , plus with the tablets being available nowadays it has become more convenient than carrying heavy and bulky books around.

What I do if I find myself in the same dilemma as you is go to this website called goodreads. I find them reliable most of the time. You should check it out.

I usually read the book reviews online to see if it is really worth reading. It is where the previous reader where I can get the feedback. When it is a good book, I may buy it on a paperback. Also, check on second hand books available in a nearby bookstore. Also, I need to lessen the volume of books at home, that's why I want to get used with online books on a pdf file, e-books. Goodluck. Thanks
