I Think, Therefore I Read
I am a very tactile person, particularly when surrounded by books or music -
The smells, the sounds, the scents are incomparable. There's nothing like the smooth cover of a new book to excite my senses and provide a mental reprive from the daily grind.
I am guilty of becoming so enthralled paging through something, I sprawl in the store aisle for a while, or find myself carrying around so many books I run out of arm space.
Bookstores are my hope that humanity still thinks for itself every now and again. And still values imagination.
Not to mention the people watching. There's always that.
