REBLOG IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BOOKSTORE IN YOUR TOWN!!!
I desperately miss going to a bookstore and browsing! Browsing on a website isn’t the same! Amazon is a pain in the ass.
I miss the feel of books. I miss reading titles on the spine and pulling a book off the shelf to see what the cover art was like. I like the displays. And sales, and reading flaps, and the back cover blurb and being able to flip to any damn page I want and start reading.
Not having to have some crappy slow loading e-sample pages that I have to read on my computer screen, which gives me a headache.
I like seeing the cover art actual size and in person.
Now I have to rely on second hand shops, thrift stores, the library and the annual library sales. It works. I still get the majority of my books this way. But you are at the mercy of whatever book someone else doesn’t want. Ordering things from the library loan system, and then waiting, and then maybe they don’t even have the book anyway. Though the library is certainly a wonderful resource and it deserves out love and support!
