I am so much like the movie, You've Got Mail. I love books. More importantly, I love bookstores. I remember going to various ones every weekend as a child. It was a family outing for us. I got a new book every weekend. We'd spend hours browsing through books because my mom so desired to be an author. Bookstores became a huge part of my life.
Now with online giants like Amazon selling books at deep discounts, the chains are even suffering, let alone the small independents that has all the history and knowledge. I encourage you to stop by your bookstore today and support them with a purchase of at least $20, even if you are sacrificing your Starbuck's money.
