How many bookstores do you frequent? Do you have a favourite? If so, which one and what makes it so?
Because I live in a small rural town, the only bookstore we have (with the exception of Wal-Mart books - yuck!) is an antique bookstore - great for finding older or first edition books; not so much the place to find current books.
Therefore, I do most of my book shopping online: Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Google books, eBay, etc. With the exception of my very favorite authors, I try books out from the library first before buying copies for my home library. My exceptions include: Laurell K. Hamilton, Brandon Mull, Stephanie King, and Neil Gaiman, just to name a few.
Of course, there is a Joseph-Beth Books about 45 miles away in Lexington, Kentucky, and whenever I go into Lexington, I usually try to visit. But, because I HATE going into Lexington, I'm lucky if I visit Jo-Beth's once or twice a year.
