What better way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon than to wander aimlessly through a Barnes & Noble? When I walk into a bookstore, my heart and my spirit soar to lofty heights: Words! In books! About anything! Organized by category! And usually there’s a peanut butter cookie somewhere nearby, too.
Today, as I perused through the stacks and volumes of various titles, I came across some winners. A quick sampling of my favorites:
It never ceases to amaze me how huge the Romance section is. And Lindsay Armstrong seems to be particularly gifted – I can totally see how this book would appeal to women nationwide. It’s just so relevant.
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen: Winnie from The Wonder Years is now an author. My favorite thing about this book involves the captions on the front: “How to survive middle school math,” “Fractions, decimals, percents, and more,” and “Do you still have a crush on him?”
I cannot look at this without thinking of this.
When it was all said and done, I left the store with one small purchase: The Between Boyfriends Book: A Collection of Cautiously Hopeful Essays. Laugh if you will, but I plan to spend the evening devouring it.
