Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about bookstores…
How many bookstores do you frequent? Do you have a favourite? If so, which one and what makes it so?
I don't frequent many bookshops. Living out in the 'sticks' I have to travel for personal service. This happens every so often and the bookshop of choice then is
Waterstones. They have a great range of fiction and non-fiction (which is my husband's preference). There is also a coffee shop on the first floor and we often have a cup while trying to decide on a purchase.
It is a national chain and there is a rewards system in progress; points are earned on each purchase and then these are converted to cash to buy more books. Every quarter they produce a magazine ,
Books Quarterly this contains lots of book information including news of latest releases.
Checking out their website, I realise there is also a book club, so I think this company have got reading thoroughly covered.
