I’m an avid reader and even though eBooks seem to be taking over the world, I still stop in the local Barnes and Noble to see what’s shaking. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I read eBooks too but it’s something about walking into a wall-to-wall store full of books. Shivers run up and down my spine. My heartbeat starts to race a bit. My palms get a little sweaty. It’s like being a kid in a candy store with my face practically smashed up against the storefront window.
I usually peruse the clearance section first, easily finding some good buys there in hardback and paperback. Then I head to the middle “what’s new” aisle where the latest and greatest is displayed. And finally I end my visit in the magazine section which happens to be located right next to the coffee shop. Ahh, it just makes for exciting fun.
Ok, I know what you’re thinking. I’m a nerd. And you may just be right. I don’t hide my love for reading just because the “cool” people may think it’s…well, boring.
I mean, how can you think something is boring when that something can teleport you into murder and mayhem, romance, intrigue, fantasy, adventure, happiness, joy, sadness and dismay. I mean, how can that be boring?
Well, the cool people can keep thinking that reading is boring but I know for a fact that it’s not. It’s the new sexy. Yep, you heard me. Reading is sexy. How do I? Well, as I walked out of the B&N, a bumper stick on the back of a car in the parking lot sort of confirmed it for me.
