I am a self proclaimed book addict. I have wall to wall bookcases in my study. As such, I have to watch what I spend on books. I can't afford to buy a ten dollar book once a week. When I go to barnes and noble I go to browse. I just can't afford to buy! But that isn't really their fault - retail book prices are outrageous. I do love the atmosphere though and all the things you can find as you wander the aisles.
