Then it happened. Books-A-Million moved in to the space that one of the Borders stores left vacant, only about a quarter mile from my house! It opened yesterday, and I was there with my credit card and two kids today. I insisted that each kid pick something out ($9.99 [!]Taylor Swift magazine for my daughter, and $4.99 Rolling Stone for my son), and I got The Sweet Life in Paris by David Lebovitz which has been on my TBR list for months. I also bought into the membership card. Anything to keep this store open.
I have learned my lesson. I will not always shop at Amazon. I will not always shop at Amazon. I will not always shop at Amazon. I will not give up shopping at used book sales and checking books out of the library, but when I need a quick gift, or there's something I can't wait to find, B-A-M will be my new best friend.
