    Time Machines

    I call bookshops time machines. There's been many a time I walk into one during the day and what seems like moments later walk out into the night.

    I Don't Have a Problem; I Can Stop Anytime I Want

    I've been trying to avoid bookstores lately. The rate at which I accumulate books far outpaces the rate at which I read books. Glancing around my room, I currently have six partially read books, as well as a bunch of others that I haven't even started yet. If I go to the...

    My Love For Bookshops

    Just the prospect of stopping by my favourite bookshop can get me excited. Three stories high, thousands of books to browse. When I enter it there's a book table with some creative, artsy lifestyle books. Then, even along the stairwell, there are more and more books, leading up...

    The Joy Of Ownership

    I love owning books. Just being able to read a book is not enough for me.  I need to go back, reread and reference the book whenever I want.  I also feel secure just looking at the book on my shelf even if I'm not reading it.  That may be a bit greedy.  But everybody needs a...

    A Good Read

    Take the book off the shelf, its usually the catchy title or an author that I enjoy that makes me pick it up in the first place.  Check the back cover (or inside flap depending on the book).  Still interested?  Open the book.  Start reading.  If you don't try to sit down...

    I Have Spent A Whole Day In A Bookshop Before!

    I was in London with friends and they were doing the touristy thing going down to the British national portrait gallery near Trafalgar Square. I went up a road called Charing Cross Road to my favourite English bookshop, Foyles. I began on ground level, and gradually worked my...

    I Love Bookshops

    I can spend a lot of time wondering in a book shop and just looking to see what books there are that might interest me. For me I have to have a book in my hand and not a kindle - even though a kindle is better when travelling so you dont have to take loads of books with you. My...

    Pass It On

    I love books! I like to find the obscure book that no one has heard of. Anyplace that has books is for me, even eBooks. I am proud to say I am also passing this trait off to my wonderful children. My daughter accepts that going to the library is a treat if she is good. :-) The...

    I'm Not An Addict...maybe, That's A Lie

    There was a used book sale on campus. I spent and hour and 45 min there and probably would've stayed longer if my friend hadn't stopped me. My friend says I have an addiction, but I think I can stop anytime I like (as long as it's not now).

    Small Recognition To A Store I Like

    Perhaps as a reaction to having been born and raised in the inland US, I have an intense interest in ships and the sea. One bookstore which has done much to satisfy that interest is the Nautical Mind on Queen's Quay in Toronto. By way of disclosure, I have no connection to the...

    The Owner'S Wife

    There is a small used book store in New York's Greenwich Village, on St. Marks Street, that is a favorite of mine. It doesn't have a large amount of books, but what they have is usually very good.  It has a lot of underground books that would apple to the leftist intellectual...

    That One Book

    Book shops, the last remnants of an old habit rarely done anymore. I'm talking about reading a good o'l book. A paperback and not an electronic device. I love me a good book store, whether it be new or old. I especially giggle like a 8 year old on Christmas day when, upon...

    I Used To Like To Sniff The Pages Of Books When I Was A Kid

    I have this wonderful memory of being a kid - maybe I was around 5 years old. I was at my grandparents house, sitting in the hallway under the light. For some reason, there was a wooden tea chest in the hallway and it was filled with children's books. I remember sitting there...

    My Special Place.

    I love the book store. I will go read the backs of new books for hours. It's my version of a trip to the mall. I love how the book store has couches and arm chairs. I'll even go catch up on the dirt in the magazine section. I always end up taking something home. In the future I...

    Small Town, No Book Store

    But we have this little thrift store that I could spend hours looking at their little collection of books. I could grab 20 books and still not even have to pay 20 dollars. I love it! But I still wish we had a book store. I'd be in there every day. Thank god we have a library.
