Today’s question, courtesy of Marie: Favorite bookstores. What’s your favorite bookstore? Is it an online store or a bricks-and-mortar store? How often do you go book shopping? Is your favorite bookstore (or bookstores) listed as a favorite in LT? Do you attend events at local bookstores? Do you use LT to find events?
My favorite bookstore is Amazon.com. I feel a little odd saying that. I really do wish that I had a physical store that I loved. Honestly, there aren’t any good bookstores nearby. I like Barnes&Noble- I really do (I’ve listed the nearby ones as favs on LT), but their prices just aren’t as good as Amazon’s. And I really enjoy just sitting in Barnes&Noble when I go- comfy seats and yummy coffee smells. I usually do end up buying something, but I cringe as I do, because I know that later when I check on Amazon- it will be cheaper there.
I go book shopping all the time. I have so many wishlists on Amazon.com! They’re sorted by genre and are all several pages long. My shopping cart has about 25 things in it, and I gradually buy them one or two at a time. I preorder lots of stuff though, months in advance, so it’s great when something shows up on my doorstep and I forgot I bought it.
I don’t attend events at local bookstores. There just aren’t any good ones! I keep an eye on the events section on LT though. I live in hope that one day my fav authors will drop by 🙂
