Before blogging (dark times people!) how would you find out about new books or did you? - Suggested by A Great Read
I love this question!
I would go to the bookstore (Borders was my favorite - esp when I had my coupon!) and would spend so much time looking at all the books on the tables - the bestsellers, staff recommendations, features, etc - and I would pile them up and buy what I could afford.
I also had a little scrap paper that I carried around that I would write the titles of books down that I wanted to buy at a later day.
Oh. Memories.
I miss that bookstore smell!
How did you find out about new books?


  1. So funny! We didn't have a Borders - all we had in our tiny town was BAM... But I worked it out. Haha! Old follower :)

    Here's my F&F!

  2. Oh the good old days of pen and paper! I do kind of miss discovering books that way. Once in awhile you would find a really special book that you might not have ever picked up otherwise! I might be too dependent on goodreads now!!

  3. Ohhh bookstores i got lost in Barnes and Noble for about 2 hours yesterday. Thnaks for stopping by followed back on bloglovin

  4. Hi Trish! I would totally write books on a scrap of paper, too! The good 'ol days. Now I just write them on my smart phone...

  5. Seriously, Borders was my number 1 bookstore. I dont think any bookstore, physical or online had a better reward program. Most of the times, I would save 30-40 on dvd show sets and books, so I was very upset when they went out of business XD

  7. I loved Borders. I still like to go to the bookstore, but I don't very often. Better for the wallet that way! Thanks for stopping by!
