One of my all time favorite things to do in this world is to go to Barnes and Noble and browse the shelves. There is just something about finding a new book (er..or 3) that just makes me feel happy, inspired, and in the mood to read more. It’s been hard ever since making my way out into the real world to make time to read, but it has been my goal recently. I really do love to read and am really trying to make time for it and cut back on the Netflix (Netflix, I still love you). If any of my high school or college English teachers were to read this, they’d probably laugh because to them that’d be the joke of the century. Let’s just say- I never read many of the books I was supposed to haha.
A couple weekends ago, my friend, Jen, and I went to Barnes and Noble to browse and find some new reads. We both like different kinds of books- I am more of a fiction/top sellers/thriller type of gal, and she enjoys more of the non-fiction/memoirs/travel/history books. Even though we gravitate towards different books, it is still fun to roam B&N and I usually come out with 1 or 2 books in my hand I didn’t anticipate purchasing.
