I can't remember the last time.....

I went to Barnes and Noble! It's a guilty pleasure of mine to head for the bookstore and camp out with a mocha and a stack of books and just spend a little time reading the beginning of a few books to see if they will catch my interest. I'm really missing this guilty pleasure right now and hope I can find some time to get over there.

Going to the bookstore was always something my dad and I have done together over the years. I remember going to bookstores with him from the time I was little and even as an adult. I love a bookstore and miss it when I don't get to one in awhile. It's not like I need any new books. G says I could open a bookstore with all the books I have. There is just something comforting about having good books around and spending time at the bookstore.

I know when my dad comes to visit in December, that there will be a few trips to the bookstores while he is here. I'm really looking forward to it too.

You've got to get out and treat yourself! I've been reading like crazy....something about the chill in the air and the days getting shorter that makes me want to crawl up with a good book.

Yay! I'm a bookstore junkie myself! I would tell you that you need to take some time for "just you", but I can't give you advice that I don't follow myself! :) OH WELL! :)

I love to camp out at B&N too, lol. ;) there is nothing like siting in a quiet book store reading over a ton of different books and scrapbook magazines with a starbucks.

Hey Sister! It's been a long time! Anyway, I second that! It's been years since I've just taken a book and sat at a coffee house with good book and a cup of coffee! That is just heaven or at least second to a night of cropping!

Are we ever going to crop together?

Being a former manager of a Borders Bookstore, I am officially offended.

LOL! I need to hit a bookstore today and get me the newest Nora Roberts. :)
