REAL BOOKSTORE vs ONLINE SHOPPING


A SMALL PIECE OF HEAVEN.

I'm from a VERY small town in Idaho. We have one small kick ass library that I love very much but ALAS no book stores. Feel my pain please.

So when I have a chance to visit the big city, unhindered by my children that want to go to the mall, a real live book store is the place I'm going to head to.

I can literally spend hours walking, looking and touching. The over stuffed comfy chairs just begging to be sat in.

And the smell-Ahhhhh. New crisp pages, glossy, shiny covers, fresh coffee brewing.....NIRVANA!

And I was oh so good- I only bought one book! But it took me an hour to choose THE ONE. I finally narrowed it down to WITHER-the brand new one I've been dying to read.

Conclusion: Being able to make my book purchase in a real bookstore beats the hell out of my online book buying experience.

Thoughts? Book store or online book buying preference?

Do share.

Happy reading!

  1. I love book stores and you are right, the smell is a big part of the experience. Our local independent bookstore closed last summer - very sad.
