Randomly Booked: Book Deficiency Solved

Filed in Randomly Booked , The Random Lover Posted on May 28, 2010 @ 8:03 am 6 comments

When I moved to Israel I knew that there would be a huge book deficiency but it didn’t really matter that much because I always found a book I could read and when I went to visit my mom I got to go on a huge book shopping spree. Also the books here cost tripple if not more of their price in dollars. When I found that out I decided that Amazon or Book Depository were my best choices. 😛

This easter I had the genius idea to buy a Kindle when I went to visit my parents. I realized really quickly how much I loved the Kindle because of the fact that I could read my book as soon as i bought it and I could travel with many books in one device making my bag alot lighter.

When I got back from my vacation and buying a Kindle I saw that in the book stores were Sherrelyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series.  I immediately became shocked and am still happy I bought my Kindle because I get to pay $10.00 for a book I would have to pay $30.00 to get here. Yesterday I found Acheron’s book and got really excited until I saw the price.

 Here bookstores aren’t like they are in the USA or Germany. Here the stores are small and there is no place to sit and read your book quietly. I really love going to Barnes and Nobles in the USA and pick an isle and sit there and read. I love the feeling. Also in my house in Miami my dads office used to be also a library and I loved reading there between all the books. There is a feeling of being in another world and its the best. I hate the feeling I get here of being rushed to look through the books and quickly get out.

Do you like to read at bookstores and why?

    Ahh sadly in France reading in a bookstore is pretty much 'forbidden'…well probably not everywhere, in big cities it's a common thing. But where I live If you start reading a book in a bookstore you'll be told to buy it or leave. LOL
    I only went ONCE in a US bookstore and I was in awe…i'm pretty sure it's what we call Heaven. 😉

    Reading in a bookstore without being frowned upon?! That sounds like heaven!
    Here it's just not done and there's not even a place to sit and read, so you'd have to read standing up. Although there's a relatively new bookstore that does have a coffeeshop attached to it…
    Hmmm, I should try how they react when I start reading their merchandise there.

    I live in the US and a lot of the best book stores do have places you can sit and read, but unless it's the coffee shop, they really don't like you to hang around for long periods of time(meaning hours).
    I personally don't read in book stores because I like to be comfortable while reading and most book stores don't have recliners or couches to laze around on.

    Reading in a bookstore "sounds" heavenly and peaceful; however, for me, part of the whole reading experience is to be transported away from everyday life, so I like to hurry home and find someplace quiet to curl up and go away for a while. If the book is real good, I may not be back! 😉
    Thanks for posting.

    I prefer to read at home, it's just comfier. And I've recently discovered I like to read lying down, so I doubt I could do that at my local B&N or Borders, LOL.
