Musing Mondays (March 23)

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?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.


I have a couple bookstores that I go to in our local shopping complex - an Angus and Robertson and a Dymocks. I'll usually pop into whichever one I'm closest to while I'm out shopping (and sometimes I'll go to both) but I would have to say that I have a preference for Dymocks.
Dymocks has, in my opinion, a slightly bigger collection - owing, no doubt to the larger store. They also have a VIP member point system as well as layby options ... all of which are equally dangerous and exciting to an obsessive reader.
While Dymock is my favourite RL store, Fishpond.com would have to be my number one stop when I'm looking for something. I'm a self-confessed internet junkie and the homebody in me loves internet shopping. When you combine that with books... well, as I mentioned, things like this can be dangerous.
