Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about bookstores…
How many bookstores do you frequent? Do you have a favourite? If so, which one and what makes it so?
Truthfully I shop mostly online now between Chapters and Amazon. However I do have a favorite bookstore. It’s called Coles and unfortunately it’s said to be closing this year in favor of the bigger chain bookstore Chapters. I’ve been going to Coles for years. It’s in a neighborhood mall and it’s on the smaller side yet I’ve always found it to be well stocked and fun to browse around in. These days I will go in just to browse and pick up on the ambience. If I find something I like I usually write it down to order from home although sometimes I can’t help myself and do come home with a few books. They also have a great staff always willing to help you find something or suggest something new if you want. I’ll really miss it when it closes.
How about you? Do you have a favorite bookstore or have you gone the way of the Internet too and shop online?
