    Barnes & Noble, I Love You!

    I absolutely could live in B&N, but sadly, the last few times I've been have been at night, about an hour before they closed. :[ There's just too much stuff to peruse in there; you can't do it all in an hour. I'm normally found scampering from the music section to the horror...

    The Thought Of It Is So Tempting!

    I absolutely love bookstores! I'm even thinking of owning a small cozy bookstore myself someday... I loose track of time when I enter a bookstore, I can spend a whole day in a bookstore and that won't be enough... Just imagine, to have access to books 24/7, to be able to...

    Coffee and Books..oh My!

    Barnes and Noble rules.  It's as simple as that.  I love to read and love coffee, so that place is like paradise to me.  I can spend hours and hours in there.  With coffee and books all together, what else could one need? :)

    I love B&N, especially

    when they opened Starbucks inside the store with pastry to choose from. A good cup of Jo and some pastry and a good book to read. Now that's quiet time for me.

    But They're Closing

    I love book stores. I can't stay out of them. Kind of funny considering I was a guy in high school that thought the apogee of literature was "Hot Rod" and "Playboy" magazines.I guess I'll just have to find another location to get my B&N fix.

    I actually get excited in a room full of books.  Especially if they're having a sale because I usually don't know what I'm going in there for and I see quite a few books I'd like to have.  I like going in there and sitting and reading for hours.  It's nice because...

    The Only Drawback

    The only drawback to Barnes & Noble is that you can not hang out there in the nude and fully enjoy yourself.  If that was the case, I think I just might have to move in!

    Another World Like

      B & N or books a million-they're both relaxing to me. Nothings better than getting a chair/table/couch and a hand full of books and readin them. it's like a mini-paradise to me.
