Good Sunday morning to you!
Today, let’s talk about the good old brick and mortar bookstores. Barnes and Noble. Ummm… are there any other chains still out there? LOL. We have a large local semi-chain bookstore here in central Kentucky – Joseph Beth Booksellers. And of course Half Price Books. Lifeway Christian Stores.
Anyway… that’s not my point lol. My point is this: do you go into those stores just to browse? Or with a particular book in mind to buy? As far as your favorite genre, what’s their selection like?
My favorite broader genre is Christian fiction and neither Barnes and Noble nor Joseph Beth has a good selection. Both are quite pitiful, actually. Our library, on the other hand, has a fantastic selection of Christian fiction which more than makes up for it. But sometimes you just want to OWN the book… in which case I order from Amazon and the warehouse here in town sends it nearly the next day lol. Lifeway, of course, has Christian fiction but they don’t always have the authors I want.
Ok now it’s your turn. Let me know your thoughts!
