I love shopping…well, shopping for books that is. I don’t really care to shop for anything else.
I love going to bookstores, grocery stores, online stores, drug stores, and wherever they sell books. I rarely leave a store without at least looking at the book section (and I usually come away with one…or two…or six).
Recently, however, I noticed something at what used to be my favorite source for books…Walmart. I was perusing the bookshelves of the local Walmart recently and noticed that they didn’t have many romances. As I said, Walmart used to be my main source for romances, but now I am lucky if I can find the Harlequin or Silhouette lines I like to read. I am not quite sure why they don’t have that many romances any more…anyone else noticing this trend at their stores?
This won’t stop me from buying books elsewhere (I mean, come on, did anyone really think that would stop me?)…I still buy books each month…for myself and for giveaways…and I love doing it.
In fact, I wasn’t going to do this, but I feel like giving something away. I was in the bookstore the other day and I picked up something that I am going to give away here today. They had these sampler books from HQN with excerpts and coupons for 6 summer releases. Now, this doesn’t contain the full stories, just excerpts and coupons for $1 off each book, but it is a nice little book to whet the appetite (and I don’t need two of them).
To enter all you have to do is answer the questions below (and let me know you are interested). I’ll announce the winner sometime Saturday, July 19. And I’ll throw in some bookmarks and goodies from authors in the envelope.
Tell me, do you have a favorite source for buying romances? A favorite bookstore? A favorite online store? Or are you like me and buy books at a variety of locations? And has anyone else noticed romances disappearing at a store? Or is it just me?
