A few weeks ago (before I went on a break from the computer) I asked some people on twitter if they had any ideas of what I should do for a new series of posts here on the blog. It didn’t take long for me to find a good one. Someone suggested that I do a series on the various bookstores I buy my books from.
Now that I’m back from my little break, I’ve been getting more productive with the blog. If you’ve seen in the last few days there are a good amount of new posts to look at. I think starting a new series will keep me writing even more. That’s really what I need to do. I need to keep in the writing mood, no matter what the writing is about or if it’s prose or poetry.
This new series should be very fun to do. I frequent used bookstores as often as I buy books. I abhor going to a new bookstore for two reasons: prices (I know why they are high, but I just plain can’t afford them, plus I like to support my local businesses instead) and atmosphere. I’ve come across a handful of used bookstores in my time as a book lover. There aren’t as many as I would like to see, but it’s still better than nothing. I would like to take this series and share my thoughts on various used bookstores and various aspects of what makes me love and support them.
Many of these posts will probably be focused on my local bookstore. I know this thing better than
the back of my hand. I once directed my mom to a book I wanted through talking to her on the phone. I was up at school 4 hours away. I hadn’t been to the store in about 2 months. I was still able to tell her EXACTLY where the book was. Sometimes I surprise even myself 😉
So I think that’s enough of a little hint as to what I’ll be sharing soon. Just keep an eye out and if you don’t see anything, please pester me until I write something. Haha. And if anyone has a great bookstore to share with everyone, don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to do a guest post, or just mention anything.
Oh and these are just two pictures I snapped fast on my visit today. I did it so I had something to motivate me to do this post. I think it worked 😀
