One of my favorite things to do. Reading in bookstores. Usually, I actually bring my own book and read it there. Usually isn’t that often though. I get to do it only when I’m window shopping in malls, or waiting for a movie screening.
There’s something about the atmosphere inside bookstores that just inspires me. I think it’s because I get encouraged by the people’s shared desire to read. They’re there because they want to read, or they want to find a book they’d want to read. Thus, the usually solitary act of reading becomes a communal one. One of the few times I get to feel social without having to say anything to the people around me.
