Today's Question: What is your favourite brick and mortar bookstore?
Answer: I love the Chapters store that is in my city as it is big and bright and comfortable. There is also a Starbucks attached to it so I can sip on my Chai Tea Latte with Soy as I stroll along and browse. I have never had a problem finding a book I was looking for in that store, and if it wasn't actually in the store, ordering it is so easy. I also like the Rewards program and other incentives I receive through email. They are currently offering a great incentive for purchasing children's books and as I have two children, it doesn't take much to encourage me to buy books for them. I can literally spend hours in any bookstore.
Jennifer @ Crazy For Books also features a great book blogger hop every Friday. The only requirement being that your blog should have content related to books, including, but not necessarily limited to book reviews. Meet new friends, have fun, discover new authors and books, and talk about what we can talk about for hours on end, BOOKS!
This week's question is:
Do you judge a book by its cover?
While I don't pick a book by its cover, I do admire book covers and the amazing talent of the artists who create them. That being said however, there are some book covers that just seem to jump off the shelf and catch my attention, or I will see them as I am browsing online and click on them to see what they are all about. Book covers have rarely influenced me to buy the book though, as I will not buy something where the plot and intrigue do not interest me no matter how beautiful the cover. I am also one of those people where bright colours can get overwhelming at times and I will tend to gravitate to things that are less bright and less colourful. Which is why I can only handle museums for a short period of time although I absolutely adore them. Do I think covers are important though, and necessary? Absolutely!!!!! But I don't buy a book because of them.
Happy reading everyone!!!
