I do a lot of my reading with my Kindle now, but the second I step foot inside a bookstore, I realize how much I miss the feel and smell of books. Yesterday, I spent a couple of hours browsing in Books a Million. I haven't been in that store in well over a year, but once I got inside, I got lost. And I started buying. Four of the books I picked up are below:
Then I saw a friend's book, and though I know her books are in the bookstores, it still thrilled me to see it.
I've known Lisa for years, and I was so proud of her when her Inside Out series made her a New York Times Bestselling Author. You can find out more about her at www.lisareneejones.com. She's a fabulous writer!
So before I left the store, I ended up buying the four books above, a jigsaw puzzle, and two crossword puzzle books, and I spent about $40. Not too bad when you factor in how much entertainment I'll get from my haul.
At any rate, after buying a vanilla cafe latte and perusing the store some more, I finally left around eight-thirty. But all four of the books I bought are part of a series so if I like them, I know I'll be back. I could buy the follow up books on my Kindle, but it just wouldn't be the same. I wonder if paperbacks are reeling me back in.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
