I was heartsick when I drove up to our local Barnes and Nobles store to see it boarded up and closed for good! I was just there Christmas shopping two days before the holiday and renewed membership fees! They did not disclose they were closing the following week. This place was like a spa to me. I call it my soothe, browsing through, not knowing what I would discover, enjoying the smell of new book bindings and printed magazines. My emotions got the best of me as I drove home and I turned from sad to angry. Can you imagine a world without book stores?? Yet another thing I love taken away! So I decided to be crazy rebellious!
This is what I did…
I knew there were cameras somewhere taking pictures of me, or I would be accosted by the Strip Mall’s parking lot guard. It was 14 degrees out and even though I was wearing gloves I knew they would find out it was me. But I didn’t care!
I LOVE THE FEEL OF REAL BOOKS!
I LOVE THE MAGIC OF REAL BOOKSTORES!
And I wanted to tell the world!
