Barnes and Noble.

Oh, that fantastic place.

I went there this afternoon to purchase The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster, and I wound up buying two other books. I put down one book on the way out because I know I won't get to read them all immediately, and there are about seven other books I can think of off the top of my head that I restrained myself from even looking at.

I like spending time at Barnes and Noble. Not only do I enjoy the books, but I like the possibilities. I like knowing that I can wander around and see new subjects and go in to new sections. I like that the Barnes and Noble on Union Square has 5 floors, and that it offers a large selection in the religion department. I like the way the philosophy isle is arranged. I like that the fiction and literature is on the top floor so that it's a little quieter up there for me, the browser. I like that the wine and spirits are located on the North side of the third floor while the cooking books are located in the South side facing the park. I like that the cafe is always full. I like that the children's department takes up almost an entire floor itself.

I like Barnes and Noble. I like books. I like Union Square. I like the Barnes and Noble on Union Square because they sell books. I guess I like most Barnes and Nobles though, in truth. The one in Layton, Utah ain't too shabby.

You made me crave B&N when all I want to do is go home and sleep...


Friday after-work shopping trip with the husband maybe?
