I haven't been able to get out to bookstores as often as I used to, but when i was in high school, they were my favorite place to be.

I used to sit in the chairs at Borders or Waldenbooks and read, or peruse the shelves or a used book shop for interesting books. The YA section was filled with novels I wanted to pick up, but I limited myself to one or two books each trip.

I think, in part, Amazon put an end to my bookstore trips. Why drive 20 minutes when I could order the books and have them arrive on my doorstep?

But there is something magical about bookshops, and even if I don't visit them too much anymore.

Libraries can have the same effect, and they are free! And they need our help, so many are closing or cutting hours and staff and stuff. It's good, cheap, relaxing entertainment to head to the library and camp out in your favorite section for a spell.
