I love bookstores! There is something about them that just makes me smile. I can spend hours in a bookstore looking at various books, smelling the “book smell.” I am not really sure how to describe the smell… its just good!
My wife Mary was looking for a specific book today and I was pleased to join her in a couple of those bookstores as she tried to find it. Finding a specific book like that is like looking for buried treasure. I love stalking the “animal” until it shows it’s face.
Bookstores are typically organized in similar ways. You have the fiction section, the non-fiction section, the best sellers, the science fiction section, the self help books, the religious section, the youth section, the children’s section and several other.
I grow tired shopping in most stores but in bookstores I get energized. I think about all the the places a particular book can take me, the adventures I can experience, the ways I will be stretched.
Reading is something special! It touches not only our minds but our spirits, our souls. Grab a good book and let it touch your emotions.
