Barnes and Noble for Shoppers AND READERS
Downstairs the checkout line was almost to the door but up here, people read and studied and now that Barnes and Noble has joined Panera with free WiFi finally, the atmosphere offers both commercial and asthetic opportunities.
In the cafe we find seats and always contribute in our way, to keeping B and N healthy- a cup of coffee, a dessert. I used to find books to buy but with my Kindle I can find titles and download samples instantly.
I am happy to see that the B and N Nook is off to a great start. Healthy competition works well for all of us.
Sadly, B and N has replaced the local library. Tuvia finds his way here often when he has a few hours in the afternoon to read.
It’s really a wonderful space to read and explore with a reading lovers community.
I remember sitting in a bookstore cafe years ago in Boston with my cousin Howie, dreaming of creating a space like this one. Oh well. At least we have them in our backyards to enjoy.
What a great place to spend a Friday night!
Happy Holidays, Slicers. Nice to be Back and Congratulations to Stacey and Ruth for this great blog we get to share.
