My General Guidelines When Going to a Bookstore …

1. Try and leave your credit card at home.
2. Never take anyone with you who is in a hurry.
3. Make sure you bring your book list. Your brain will short circuit trying to focus on all the books as well as trying to remember which ones you need.
4. Try and leave your credit card at home.
5. If you do not own a copy of a particular book don’t ever assume you can come back and get that book later. It will never be there when you go back!
6. Once you have everything selected, ask yourself, “Can I really afford all these books?”
7. Convince yourself that you can and hurry to the check out counter!

…secondhand bookstores have pilgrims. The words out of print are a call to arms for those who seek a Holy Grail made of paper and ink.

Questions for all you booklovers … how important are these things to you?

1. Is the price of a book relative to its condition important to you? (For example, would you pay $1.00 for a book in really bad condition as long as it was merely readable?)

2. When you shop for books do you prefer the book to be in good condition?

3. If you could get a book in good condition at 50% off its cover price, would you buy that book?

My depth of purse is not so great
Nor yet my bibliophilic greed,
That merely buying doth elate:
The books I buy I like to read:
Still e’en when dawdling in a mead,
Beneath a cloudless summer sky,
By bank of Thames, or Tyne, or Tweed,
The books I read — I like to buy.

Three More Days …

My days with Barnes & Noble are numbered. This weekend is my last weekend to work. I’m going to miss the bookstore itself (even though I can continue to visit), I’m not going to miss the management team - biggest joke on the planet. Nonetheless, I have to chase my dream … Paper Town Books.
