Which section of bookstores do you like to linger in?

the second hand section, the older the better, normally in biographies, trillers, horrors, crime, romance......okay i read them all.... bit of book worm who loves to escape the real world... ;)

I head for the English section, because I can't read Chinese

Love bookstores. I spend hours in them. I generally go for the fiction section.

Don't you mean i still have to work my ACB...?

I admit to losing many weeks of my life in bookstores. I've read entire novels/travel guides etc in them (not all in one go, although have come close without realising it) through the years.

Unless i'm looking for something in particular, i tend to start in travel 8and often stay there), but general fiction, sports, music, some other random thing i happen to notice in passing can all hold me captive for hours

Bookstores = broke!
I have to stay away from them. That's why at Chirstmas I ask for gift certificates to bookstores. I could spend days in the one near me. It's called the World's Largest Bookstore. I don't know if it is or not, but it is very very large. I only allow myself to go to a bookstore when I have absolutely nothing (of interest) to read. Then I stock up! Broke again!

Do you guys have good libraries? because I love going to bookstores and browsing for hours but since that costs money I also love bringing home stacks from the library...

Hey Leah (that's my sister and aunt's name!) You will not believe this, but I live between two libraries. But for some reason, I prefer bookstores. I wonder if it has to do with the book never being opened before and not covered in those tatty plastic covers.

I would live in bookstores if they would let me. Books are usually the most I spend on when going abroad.
