I love books and even though there are plenty of bookstores online, it is not the same as going to a bookstore and checking out the books yourself. Barnes and Nobles is one of my favorite bookstores. You can always find one closeby and go there and spend hours checking out the books. Some of there stores have a cafe and its a perfect setting for reading a good book. And when you are ready to buy a book, the staff is very poilte and helpful.
