Today’s question:
When you walk into a bookstore — any bookstore — what’s the first section you head toward (what draws you)?
My response:
To be honest, I haven’t been to a bookstore in quite a while.  There really has been no need to.  But when I did frequently visit one, I would head straight to the New HC Releases.  Not to purchase, I never bought a HC, I just could not justify paying that price for something that I would read in a couple of days.  But what I would do is write down the names of all the new releases that I wanted to read and when I left, went straight to the local library to put my name on the waiting list.

However, since I started blogging and reviewing for different publishers, authors, tour companies, I have a bookcase of books just screaming to be read.  And now with EReaders, I have the bookstores at my finger tips.  As I sit here thinking about and answering this question, and this is quite sad to say, I don’t know if I will ever have the need to visit a bookstore in the future.  Even if I were to purchase a book as a gift for someone, I would probably do it online.  

What about you?  Where is your first stop when entering a bookstore?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  2. As you know I am predictable about gravitating to which section!!

  3. Good answer to Musing Monday! You’re a woman after my own heart.

  4. I like to check out the new releases also. I love looking at the cover art on the books on display. But, I too, am hooked on shopping on my e-readers.

  5. I generally head straight to the check out. My indie always knows where the books I want are and they hunt them down for me.

  6. wow, our answers are almst identical…well, except for my first part, the “fake” part!

  7. I do a lot of online shopping for books too! If I go to a bookstore though, my first stop is the bargain tables.
