Swell Gift!

Last year for my birthday my husband gave me a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble and the whole day to spend there, alone, it was a wonderful gift!

I strongly recommend requesting the same from a small (if any remain in your area) independent bookstore.

The big fish ate the little fish and then the shark ate the big fish... and everyone is wondering why the ocean is barren.

B&N and their ilk destroyed the small independent bookstore, and then Amazon came along and *ate their lunch*.

I enjoy the browsing experience in the BBB (big box bookstore) for it's opulence/extravagance, but ultimately I would rather have 10 small independents in my community than one BBB. Just as I would rather have a set of small, high quality, personal food stores than a megamart.

But in any case, I am glad there are still people buying and reading books!

My preference is always little, tiny box over a big, obnoxious box. I loose myself in nooks of charming bookstores. I give my late husband credit for coming sort of close;) Bless is heart. And as I recall it did indeed afford me a lovely day away from duty.

I love that bookstore. We don't have it in my country. Our best is fullybooked
