A Respite for Reading

Because we try to save money wherever and whenever
we can, our entertainment budget is spread pretty
thin. Being lovers of books and reading, we like
to go to either of our larger bookstores in town,
Borders and Barnes & Noble. We can check out the
new books and magazines while drinking a cup of
coffee or tea and it's cheap entertainment. We
also support the independent booksellers in town
and Grand Junction has a fair amount of small new
and used bookshops so we can visit fairly frequently
and see different inventory. It's a good town for
readers and fans of bookstores.

Browsing through Barnes & Nobles is always on our to do list when we go to town, and we end up coming home with books way too often. We're both avid readers, so we try to get a lot of our books used, just to keep our budget in line. But it's still fun to look.

I’d like to invite you to join our brand new, family friendly BLOG VILLAGE TopList. I think your blog would be a great addition.

You can find out more about it at Blog Village blog.

Death to Barnes & Noble. You should be ashamed of yourself. Borders is obviously a far superior bookstore and as someone who has scrubbed toilets and cleaned carpets for you AND worked at Borders (the best damn corporate bookstore around) you should repay those nasty toilets and carpet stains with your undying loyalty to Borders Books, Music, Video and Cafe. ;)
