I live about 2 blocks from one of the largest independent book stores in the US. In addition to all the newest reads they also have 5 floors of used books. In the evening I walk there and pull a book off the shelf and go back into the stacks to read. My current read is Swanns Way by Proust
I remember Barnes & Nonble's big store in Seattle, how I loved to sit down in their comfy armchairs and browse through books. You could even get a coffee from the in-store Starbooks (funny how the mind works, you know what I mean). And this might seem silly but I was in awe of their swanky bathrooms! I'm back home in Ireland now and bookstores are a much more modest affair. Here's the thing, though - I love browsing but I don't support the stores by buying; well, almost never. I browse in the stores and then buy online. Some day I might have to pay a big price for that.
