I like to read books but i don't buy them. Instead i have a library membership. I always try to learn something new. The library is near my house so it serves all my instant purposes like referring. So, never had to buy books.

Not ever, but sometimes. Books here, where I'm living, are expensive and the cheapest cost about ten dollars. At least so I think. There are books fairs, where you can buy them for a lower price. However I like to visit those Books stores and spending the time looking the books. Here are beautiful such stores and some have a coffee shop as well. It's a nice experience to buy a book in there.

I think that where you are living, the used book store offers books as if they are almost new, in good condition and affordable price. In my home country, we have not such stores, although used books will be sold but in bad condition, then I prefer to go to the stores where new books will be offered. Anyway I like very much to visit book stores too. :)

The majority of my books come from swapping, but I still love going to book stores. And I am so sad that Borders is closing. It is the only major book store in our area. I think now I'm going to start checking out some of the local guys

I'm not much for going shopping unless I need something in particular, but going to a bookstore is the one exception. I really enjoy spending time browsing the shelves. I have to limit how often I go though, as I always end up buying 2 or 3 books and I have quite an extensive library already. I always find something interesting in the bargain bins.

Oh yeah, that's one of my favorite ways of relaxation and spending the weekend. I would go to the shopping mall not too far from my house. I would stroll around and the mall, and would not miss dropping in at the book stores there. Glance through magazine and books. The store staff is so friendly, always ready to help in finding books of interest.

yes. I stop in Book stores. gaze through the magazines. I am fond of competition magazines since I teach aptitude in the colleges. I go through english and tamil magazines. After this internet coming, you know, nowadays reading books has come down. That causes strain in the eyes. this may be the case for majority of us who are accustomed to mylot.

Bookstores are dangerous to me. I stay away from them as much as I can, but the shelves at the thrift stores always trip me up! I do buy books from Amazon when I have enough gift certificates to cover the cost. It's the only way I can afford them.

Just like you, I love going to bookstores. To spend hours browsing through books is a favorite pasttime of mine. Whether its a large, luxurious bookstore chain or a cramped, musty independent bookseller, I enjoy frequenting any establishment that sell books. My favorite type of bookstores are the ones that allow their shoppers to browse through the books, provide cozy nooks or loveseat or even carpeted floors where readers can settle down and lose themselves in the books. However, I have to admit, going to bookstores is a danger to my wallet. It's very rare for me to leave one without buying books. My husband is not a happy camper when he sees me come home with another bundle of books.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bookstores :( It lasts in me staying for hours and buying hundreds of dollars worth of books lol. But recently i've been good. I went to the local bookstore and they had a huge sale, and bought around 150 dollars worth of books for 3.00. Quite pleased with that! All i need now is time to read them.

I love bookstores. I could spend hours just wandering around, looking at everything. I love the smell of books too. And coffee so the ones with a coffee bar or shop built in are my favorites. :) If I could find a guy who thought a bookstore was an appropriate place to take a date, I'd be set for life! hehe
