So after fuming a few minutes I decided to "redeem the time" (please forgive me ) by going to a nearby Barnes and Noble to browse around as a calming device. I LOVE book stores, I love the smell of the printed page, the feel of the pages riffling past my fingers, the idea of another world hiding between the covers, I even love the taste of the older books, the smell of the shellac used as a preservative, the mustiness of yellowed pages...Oh, I could go on and on! So what if people think that it's weird...I don't care!
Anyway, as is usually the case, titles, authors and subjects jump out at me, begging for a purchase, or at least the memory to check the local library for a rental, and, as is also usually the case, I knew that I would be lucky to remember just one title.
But wait!!! I'd forgotten that I have a cell phone with a CAMERA! That's it! I'll take pictures of the books so that I WILL remember! Oh happy day!
So below you'll find a few of the books that caught my interest, and just maybe a little insight into my mind by analyzing my choices.
