How many bookstores do you frequent? Do you have a favourite? If so, which one and what makes it so?
Unfortunately, most of the bookstores in my area have closed. Sad because I live near a college town. We have several student bookstores, but their selection of books beyond texts is limited. Our last independent bookstore closed about ten years ago. We do have a midsize Barnes & Nobel, which isn't bad but doesn't have the service and selection of the independent stores. I don't have a favorite store at the moment.
I should take some inspiration from Amy of My Friend Amy and do some searching for bookstores in the surrounding communities. Maybe I'll discover a gem of store not too far away.
How about you? Do you have a nearby good bookstore? How far would you drive to visit a good bookstore?
