This weekly hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, featuring a question about books each week. The purpose is to bring bookish bloggers together, basically. To participate, write a post about the question for that week and add your link.
This weeks question: 24th – 30th – What’s your immediate feeling when entering a bookstore, as compared to how you feel when entering a department store? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)
My immediate feeling when entering a bookstore is oh em gee where do I start first? Then I normally hightail it to the young adult section first to see what new books have come out or if any are on sale. When I enter a department store, normally I am there for a specific reason so I just go to that section get what I need and leave. For instance this past Monday, I went to Kohls and only looked in the baby section for cold weather clothes for baby S. We’re traveling to South Carolina next week to visit family and introduce baby S to my grandma who lives in assisted living, and it is much colder there than where I currently live (we are still wearing shorts and tank tops and it’s almost December!).
Long story short, I love to browse and look around at bookstores. Sometimes I’ll even go and read the back cover of every book that I want to get to decide which one to buy then. When I go to department stores, I am on a one track mind and hardly ever just wander around unless I have a lot of time to kill or just want to be out of the house with the baby.
How do you feel walking into a bookstore compared to a department store?
