yeah i know, old school. But nothing beats that feeling of holding a book in your hands, smelling that odour of new and having the same exciting emotions as if you are holding a mystery box of sorts. Because thats what a book is: a treasure chest of knowledge, no matter if it is...
I could spend hours in them. I love how there are notes on the first page like birthday wishes. It always gives the book history. One of my favourite bookstores was R.M.C stamps and coins in Moonee ponds, Melbourne. The second hand books were just stacked too the roof it was...
that cannot be replaced with an electronic device, the feel on it in your hands as you become absorbed in the story. I love secondhand bookstores, the hunt for an elusive title brings the detective out in me, finding an out of the way bookstore and exploring it,s contents. They...
because if I have time to pass while in town I'll always pop into the local bookstores to browse & spend some time in the ambience among the books..but I think the staff are recognising me now & I don't want to be a bother!!
and the contents inside these stores. I have a huge library at my home with 4 huge bookcases with over 100 books in each bookcase. Obviously, the majority of my readings within the medical career field. My other books include travel, sightseeing events, tennis, cookbooks, and...
so into a book and its characters that its almost as if you're feeling what the character is feeling??
I love reading and find I enjoy a book when this happens. When is so good that you can't put it down and even shake a bit as you turn to the next page.
Lmao weird? Maybe...
the books that I wished , always had to cut down to one or two only.
But I loved the public libraries as well as my relatives friends neighbours libraries. There was no home to enter without going out with a borrowed book. Used to read day and night, so that I would be able to...
My other and father loved a good fairytale and even made up an audio story for my brothers and sisters. I cherrished my books. The smaller they were the more I identified with them. Bookstores in Eugene where special. Filled with hundreds or even thousands of books, mostly...
that is entirely a library. Much more than the study I have. I know the Internet is an immense database, but what about the aesthetics of books? No adverts blocking your reading, or cookies tracking what you search to interrupt with messages and popups linked to your health...
capture my attention quite like spending time in a bookstore. I can easily get lost for hours, immersing myself among the shelves. I find it utterly peaceful... and always come home with new treasures . :)
You know how at bars guys buy girls drinks well if he wants to talk to her or date or something. well I guarantee that if a guy made small talk with me at a book store then offered to buy me the book I was looking at then I would definitely go on a date with him.
I own one and yes it is easier and quicker but I miss the days before they closed most of the bookstores, I used drive down and buy my coffee to take out and just sit in a cozy chair for an hour of more forgetting about reality and living in my own world of erotic romance...
own bookstores; they seem to be well rounded in their choices and not over whelming like big bookstore have/do. If that's the case you'd think the bookstores would have an area for ebook readers. Further more, you'd think the publisher/seller would give a percentage to the...
and I will leave utterly content with 15 new books to add to my every growing collection. There is something so great about running your fingers over the spines of books hunting for the next story in immerse yourself. Sometimes it can be expensive to be a bibliophile though.
I wrote. Umm.. it has something to do with bookstores. haha
An Open Letter to People Who Can’t Stop Saying “You don’t have a boyfriend because your standard is high.”
How do you know my standard?
Was it ever published in a book or
Featured in a newspaper
I am not a...
when it comes to reading. I love the way the books smell (hope it isn't just me), the way it sounds when you turn the pages. My imagination is definitely much larger because I read. I honestly would go to Barnes and noble or any bookstore once a week if I could :)
for as long as I can remember... They have the ability to transport me into new worlds and awaken ideas within me that I never knew were there. Bookstores are magical to me... There is so much information just waiting to be discovered. They never get old.
& safe places
(this book is for those
who know this to be true)
I found this in a wonderful book, The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell and think it's marvellous.
BN version. Never again do I want to buy another paper book. I want to bring my little reader into Starbucks and read for 45 minutes to an hour and digest part of a book.
Also, the music section is great. Certain stores are more generous in their varieties than others so I know...
peace of mind. There is so much potential in a bookstore. You can almost always find a similarly minded individual there. You all are there for the same reason. A library and/or bookstore is a kind of 'home' for me. A safe haven from the rest of the world.
I am sure, my love for bookstores will never die.
The moment I walk into a bookstore, the smell of those books, perfectly shelved, lights up my world.
If I got a chance to work as a part-time bookstore employee, I would not think twice. ;-)
