I loooove bookstores! I always land up spending so much money in them! I have a "Chapters" store close to my house....and I love walking around there with a cup of coffee from the Starbucks inside and just browsing through the entire store!

I guess if I was in a hurry and had to narrow it down to a few sections....I love the travel section (of course!), the fiction section, the humour section and the arts/photography section. I love the sports section as well, but I find the books I buy there are more of a coffee-table nature, and I'm more into the novel-type reading right now. I always buy an NHL official guide and record book each year so I have up-to-date stats for the season...but this year that's not needed. :(

Quoting Wocca

Which section of bookstores do you like to linger in?

I only check out two or three sections at the most when I am in the, non fiction (biographies, true stories, history), and spiritual reading.

I really like bookstores!

I go to the fantasy/science fiction, cooking and travel sections!

And I always take a good book to read when I go traveling :)

I would live in a bookstore if I could! :) everytime I visit my mom, I have nearly an hour on a station where tehy have a great bookstore. I would say books are my drug! *smile*
I look after sience fiction, history, crime!
Someday that will make me really poor, because here are books very expensive!

You would just loooove New York City's book fairs...they have them on the weekends mostly in the summers, you can find really good books for a dollar or less...maybe some for more (used of course) but for 1/4 or 1/8 of what it would cost at the can spend the whole days glancing through everything you find...

yes, but i always find difficulty picking something. I like military history, but read most of them in my local bookstores. Some travel books look a bit uninteresting. I'm just about to finish Seven Years in Tibet (very good) and went to look for a new book today but couldnt find too much.

Any suggestions?

I'm quite into stories about exploration of the new world at the moment. Read a few Giles Milton books so after something similar (Nathaniels Nutmeg, ?Big Chief Elizabeth? and White Gold are all a good read).

Any of you bookworms ever come to England be sure to visit Hay-On-Wye. It's a small village in Wales with hundreds of bookshops, and bookshelves in the streets as well!!!!

I admit it. I am a book addict. I usually read 5 to 7 books a week. My biographies and WWII books, I am unable to part with. But I have managed to get of close to 3000 books in the past couple of years....I can't stop..and I don't want too! I also stopped borrowing them out to hurts to much when I don't get them back:(

Joz, what's the best WWII book you have read. That's my area of interest as well.
