Vignette with the Meaningful & Unexpected
2 hours ago
|Yesterday I popped on over to my local B&N to, hopefully, find a new and exciting something to read.|
I started in the magazine section....zip, zilch, nada.
Gosh I miss the days of going in and grabbing 3-4 different magazines (at a reasonable price mind you!) and leaving the store happy! Miss, miss, miss that.
Even the new "Where Women Create" didn't excite me....I know!
But because of the price I need to be overwhelmed by it, kwim?
Otherwise I just don't pop for it.
Left that section with nothing.....:(.
Then I decided to check out the decorating section (which I might add is dismal). Why oh why don't they offer more books?
Now I have my eye on the three books above, and I know the first one doesn't come out until Nov. 1 so I wasn't expecting to find that one. But I'd love to flip through the other two on my list to see if I'd like them or not. They weren't there, but there was a woman who had all but set up a tent in front of the decorating section, she was quite large and it irked me no end that she didn't even offer to move out of the way so that someone else could get a look at the shelves. Why do people do that? Why so self-absorbed? I normally wouldn't have a problem asking someone to please get the he double hockey sticks out of my way (nicely of course..:) but I just wasn't in the mood yesterday. It was my first day out of my house in 5 days due to illness and I guess my expectations were a bit too high and maybe, just maybe, I got cranky?
Anyway, have any of you got an opinion on the books above?
I'd be most indebted to know your opinions on them. It's no wonder the big box bookstores are going out of business! All they push now, it seems, are Nook's not books.
Whew, I feel better, thanks for listening to my whine....:).
