To The Book Store

I should be grateful that my daughter enjoys reading so much.  I am.  The only part about this love of books that doesn't sit well with me is that she goes through them so quickly that I can't keep up with the demand.  We have a sweet, little neighborhood Library, however it doesn't always have either the next book in the series that she's reading or she can't find something that interests her at the moment.  I'm happy that she loves to read but the constant request to go to a book store fills me, or rather our bank account, with dread.


I really hate turning down a trip to a book store.  We have some incredible shops in our city and I do love to visit them, but "hanging out" in a book store just doesn't appeal to me as much as it once did.  I'm sure that feeling will come back, but I can't relax when I'm there.  While she's perusing the book shelves I keep thinking about all of the things that need to get done.  I remember spending hours at my favorite book seller.  Ahh... I'm sure I'll return to those times again, just not right now.

If I do need to go to a book store I try to find discounts, and/or coupons, on-line before we head out.  Every little bit helps I always say, and when it comes to saving on new releases, or the much anticipated next book in the series, I will scour the internet to see who is sharing a good deal.  I've found all kinds of sites that share coupon codes.  My fellow bibliophiles, I'm sure you would love to come across how you can save when you find a Barnes & Noble discount.

I know that I could order on-line, but I really enjoy that feeling of being surrounded by shelves of books and I believe my daughter does too.  And, I'm holding off on the Kindle and Nook situation.  I just can't bring myself to it.  Have you heard someone say, "Wow, that book was a real finger-flipper!"?  It just doesn't hold the same weight as hearing "it was a real page-turner".  Yeah.  That sounds much better.  I love the look, feel, even smell of books.  Honest to goodness paper.  Now, if I could just find more discounts to keep up with my daughter's love of reading we'll be good to go.  (To the bookstore, that is ;-> )
