Great atmosphere for the geek in you 4/15/2006

Ok, all those closet geeks that love to read and dive into a good book for an afternoon raise your hand. That's what I thought... you're out there. If you enjoy a quiet afternoon or evening with a good book then Border's is the place for you. While their music area tends to be slightly more expensive than, let's say WalMart or Best Buy, they offer a great deal more and will special order anything you might want that they don't have. Their book selection is wonderful and again, while some of it may be slightly higher than something you would purchase at WalMart the selection alone is worth staying on the lower Peach Street level, not to mention the slightly less crazy traffic as you can slip off I-79 directly into the drive that goes to Borders, outside the mall area. What I love most and is most enticing to those of us who just simply want to disappear for a few hours in a good book and cup of java is the café that is tucked into the corner of the store. You can order a big cup of coffee or whatever your taste buds crave and slip into a comfortable table or overstuffed chair to read a good book. They even sometimes have some comforting local performers there to soothe you with some jazz or light rock. They also have a fairly good magazine area that has a lot of hard to find publications and their kids area is really pretty good. They offer a computer to help you look for books you can't find, which I found especially helpful in the children's section! They sometimes run special readings and fun stuff in the children's area also. All in all, a good experience for anyone who loves books! more
