Well, that’s a no-brainer. I love to shop. So, when my husband is playing golf with his buddies I go shopping. And LET me tell you we have a shopping mecca down here – there’s Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar…..
Seriously, I leave those stores to when my husband is available to shop with me since they are HIS favorite stores. Mine are those yummy book stores right down the street. Wooo, I’m in hog-heaven. So, in honor of Banned Books Week, I’m heading to BAM and B&N, to see what I can see. I have a shopping list (always), and I know I want hard-backs as opposed to the more affordable and less-durable paperbacks. That’s not to say I don’t buy paperbacks, because I do and I’ve bought my very fair share of e-books. But there’s just something about holding that beautiful hardback in my hand – it’s substantial and significant. I never thought I’d say this, but I want to collect those gorgeous Harry Potter books and since I haven’t read any of them, I think that’s where I’ll start.
Then, if there’s time, I’ll stop by my fav craft store to drool over the beautiful scrapbook papers. I used to be a scrapper and card-maker, but when we moved, I threw away a LOT of paper scraps. Now, I’ve started slowly getting back into the paper crafting I used to enjoy. No wonder I like books – what with all the paper they are made from!
Gotta run. I hear a book calling me…..
