Tuesday Thingers (Hey it's still Tuesday here in California!)

What’s your favorite bookstore? Is it an online store or a bricks-and-mortar store? How often do you go book shopping? Is your favorite bookstore (or bookstores) listed as a favorite in LT? Do you attend events at local bookstores? Do you use LT to find events?

I'm a bit slow getting around to this today. Life has intruded and I just didn't have much blog time today!!

This weeks question is pretty simple for me. Even though I live in a city of over 175,000 people, we have very few bookstores. We have a Barnes and Noble, Borders, a Christian bookstore, a used bookstore, a cookbook store, (oddly specific...) and a couple of mom and pop stores. The small shops here seem to cater to a specific genre, or in the case of the used bookstore, I have a hard time finding something I'm either interested in or haven't already read. Most of my book purchases are from Amazon, some from B and N online. I've always had good luck with both. I don't really get to any events, I'm lucky if I can find the time to read everything I want, I don't spend my free time going to events. Maybe when life gets calmer and I get less occupied with other stuff!!
