One of my favorite things...


One thing that I like to do on Sunday is to shop our local bookstores. Collected Works in the downtown area is great place to scope out new reads,have a nice cup of coffee and maybe a danish or two. Not that I need to be but this window display drew me in.

Good work, Randy! I also like to spend time in the bookshops. I remember that years ago, when in US, I walked for my first time in a Borders bookshop and I was enchanted by the concept. Now we have this type of bookshops in my town too.

Dennis Ferrol said...

I want that book!

Jacob said...

It would draw me in, also. And I'll meet you there. May take me awhile to get there, though. Save me a danish. Or maybe a swede? ;-)

Olá, infelizmente o que me traz aqui hoje não é o facto de vir visitar o teu blog e deixar a minha marca respectiva a este seu post, peço desculpa por isso. Assim sendo venho aqui hoje, para o(a) avisar que descobri recentemente que alguém criou uma conta falsa utilizando os meus dados, não ficando contente e satisfeita com a situação a pessoa usou a conta para destabilizar o bem estar de outros utilizadores, a conta so era utilizada para insultar e molestar as pessoas. Venho por isso dizer lhe que se foi alvo de algum comentário menos bom, feio por alguém que usava os meus dados e a minha foto de perfil, este alguém não fui eu! Não sabia disso, não dei permissão para a criação da conta assim como não aprovo nem autorizo tudo o que foi feito! A única conta que tenho, sendo a única que é verdadeira é esta por onde lhe contacto, http://tiagophotografy.blogspot.com/ as outras são falsas ignore! Visite sempre o meu blog, será sempre bem vindo!
Abraço!

Great title for a bookstore.

The Story telling face would have drawn me in too...

'The Native American Experience' would definitely make me go inside.

Lúcia said...

A good book + a danish or two are perfect for a Sunday! ;-)

Luis Gomez said...

Sounds like a great Sunday!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

You had me at 'coffee and danish' Randy, but the books would be good too!!Did you find something to take home?

Tanya said...

i love doing the same thing! i don't own a nook or kindle and it doesn't appeal to me, although i know it's the "green" thing to do...i just love a real book and a good book store!

Regina K said...

Sounds like a perfect Sunday.

Halcyon said...

I love book shopping too! No Kindle for me. :)

Dawn said...

THAT sounds like on heck of a way to spend a Sunday. Love it! Have a good one Randy...and a coffee for all of us:)

Regina K said...

Randy, I almost forgot to answer you. I have a couple of TJ bags that I bought ages ago and didn't pay attention to what they now display. I will look in a few weeks when I head down there again.

Craig said...

I'm with you Randy - once I'm in I'm hooked for an hour or two! That window would have drawn me in too.

Sharon said...

I love book stores and quite a few of them in my area of town have closed lately. Sad.

T. Becque said...

Local bookstores are so much fun, much more unique than the chain stores. Although I must admit I like Barnes and Noble too :)

Magpie said...

I love bookstores! There's just a special feel to them for me. I'm sad to think they may become a thing of the past.
We're all agreed, you're right...you should deliver the wine just so nothing happens. Ramblin' Kathy says she's in too. :)

cieldequimper said...

Groan. Don't let me loose please. The face is so beautiful...
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

PauloSilva said...

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jack said...

Browsing a bookstore and sitting for a bit with a cup of coffee are the best ways to spend a few hours.

Karen Xavier said...

You have an interesting blog... happened to stumble upon your blog and found myself engrossed.

Doug Hickok said...

Yes, hooray for bookstores, coffee and danish! I could spend all my days in such places!!!

Michaele said...

Better yet - looks like a book on tape? I would be interested too.

jennyfreckles said...

Sounds like my kind of Sunday too.

Carola Bartz said...

Who can resist a good local bookstore?

Allison said...

I love bookstores (and danishes), too, Randy. That is something I have missed for the past twenty years - all our bookstores are French or German, with a tiny and very English 101 style English section.... meaning I read them all in the tenth grade. :(

If you see a woman in thin black glasses peering over the aisle at you from the modern poetry section, that's me. ;)

It happens, I always try not to buy anything, but sometimes it is almost impossible...
