We have been planning our year long journey in our RV. Of course, part of that is hitting some great book related attractions. So far we will be spending a week near Gulf Shores Alabama, another week in New Orleans and another week in Austin Texas. Taking any and all suggestions. These will be in January and February will be in New Mexico

Avanders Page One and Book Works are my 2 favorite independent bookstores in ABQ :). Sounds like an amazing trip! 3w
Crazeedi @Avanders def Page One! I loved that bookstore, and Page Two was where we got used books! 3w
Avanders @Crazeedi I used to love Page Too too (heh heh 😆), but sadly it closed. Happily, Page One now sells both used & new ☺️ (and it‘s relocated and redecorated ☺️☺️) 3w

BookwormAHN Beignets at Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter of New Orleans 😻 3w
Crazeedi @Avanders it's been several years since I was there, didnt know that, I love love love ABQ!! 3w
TheAromaofBooks This sounds like an amazing adventure!! I'm so jealous!! 3w
Lindy In New Mexico, you might like to have a mineral soak at Ojo Caliente after so much driving. Also, Mabel Dodge Luhan House at Taos is beautiful and has lots of literary connections. 3w
TheLudicReader What an awesome trip! 3w
Zelma Stay away from Bourbon Street in New Orleans (except for Pat O‘Briens). Go to Frenchmen Street for music instead. 3w

@erinreads I am just wondering if you have sent out the #readersgonnaread book for this month seeing I have not received anything yet.

erinreads I sent out The Wild Swans a couple of weeks ago. Did that never show up? 3mo
Endowarrior21 @erinreads no it did not but it might of gone to my neighbors house they are on vacation right now but I will ask them when they get home Saturday night. Our mailman can not tell a zero from a two he has given me her mail and she has gotten mine. I will let you know either way. 3mo

On a recent visit to Hay-on-Wye this wonderful place was closed 😩. Its the only bookshop in the U.K. specialising in letterpress printed books in collaboration with small press and book binders. But it also does some amazing book related projects - working with non readers, visually impaired readers and global charities. I guess I need to plan a return trip to Hay at some point!

Crazeedi Sounds glorious, would love to visit 5mo
Mitch @Crazeedi sounds quirky doesn‘t it! Whilst I was there I peered through the window and it looks a cool store! 5mo

Website is here: https://www.readsandcompany.com/

Hey lovely Littens,

my mum booked a little trip to Firenze, Italy. 😍😘👍

So my question to you is, do you know any bookshops I should visit???

Maybe you know one @JazzFeathers ???

Tanisha_A There is a place called Firenze? Wow! Reminds me of Firenze, the centaur from HP! ☺️ 9mo
Sarah83 @Tanisha_A it's called Firenze in Italy. In English it's called Florence. 😍 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence 9mo
Tanisha_A @Sarah83 Ooh, I know Florence. Wasn't aware of that bit of Trivia, thankee! 💌 9mo

Sarah83 @Tanisha_A you're welcome 😍 9mo
Dragon Florence is so beautiful! I didn‘t go to any bookstores, unfortunately, but I did go to the Uffizi Art Museum. Enjoy !!! 9mo
BookNAround I don‘t know which bookstores I ended up in during our Tuscany trip but every one that I went into had a foreign language section. Since I only read English, I‘m not sure how extensive other languages were but even the bookmarks were different and cool to me. 9mo
Sarah83 @BookNAround that's what I thought about 😍 I want to buy some Italian bookmarks 😍 9mo
AlaMich How fun!! Have a great trip! 🇮🇹 9mo
JazzFeathers Unfortunately, l'm not very familiar with Firenze. But l'll ask around 😀 9mo
Sarah83 @JazzFeathers Thank you 😍 9mo
JazzFeathers Right! My sister just reminded me! I've never been there, but one of our authors will hold a presentation of his book, Bibliotherapy, there. It's the Little Apothecary of Books. Books come with a prescription: they have a tag and on the tag is written for whome that book will be most beneficiary to. It's a very small place but it sounds awesome https://www.sololibri.net/Curarsi-con-i-libri.html 9mo
Sarah83 @JazzFeathers sounds great. 😍 I have to look for it. 😁 9mo

Countdown to The Bookshop Crawl weekend! I‘m going to be ‘Crawling‘ on Feb 9th some new to me bookshops & some old favourites including Ink@84, House Of Hodge & New Beacon Books in the east before heading into town for London Review, Hatchards & Belgravia Books. If you want to join me at some point drop me a line mitch(dot)k(at)mac(dot)com

Mitch @squirrelbrain on a Saturday the Market is great. A fab place to pick up some street food for brunch or CrossTown doughnut! The book shop is small ( a little bigger than Pages) but nice collection. Three doors down is a great bookshop that sells coffee table type books and high end magazines (edited) 9mo

I haven't got much reading done this week, because I've had jigsaw fever! Slightly obsessed, it's so satisfying. Except when you realise the box is missing quite a few edges... And this was new out of the box 🤨 Missing edges are better than missing middle pieces though.

So we went to #dollartree and I couldn‘t help myself. #dollartreebookhaul #bookhaul

We also went to Walmart and I saw these two cute #puzzles which will come in handy when I do some #audiopuzzling. One of them was on clearance and the other was $5.97 (regular price), which was very cheap for a puzzle of 1,000 pieces.

Erinreadsthebooks Nice! I just finished a beach trip that included finishing three puzzles. I forgot how much I love them 🤓 1y
TheBookAddict @Erinreadsthebooks awesome! For years I had gone without even looking at a puzzle and then, about 3 years ago, I saw puzzles at dollar tree and decided to get one since it was only $1. That puzzle made me remember how much I enjoyed working on a puzzle, so now I have a puzzle addiction 😆. I glue them together when I‘m done and frame them. It‘s beautiful and inexpensive wall art. 🙂 1y

This weekend was, at long last, the grand opening of the new bookstore near me, Bookery. I have lived in this area pretty much my whole life, and I've never had an indie bookstore this close to me. I have to admit, I cried a bit when I was leaving my way through the crowds gathered inside. Can't wait for this place to be my home away from home. ❤️

Li_21 I was there too!! 1y
callielafleur @Li_21 isn't it wonderful?? It was very crowded by the time I got there, so I didn't spend as much time as I would like. But I can wholeheartedly recommend the donuts in the cafe! 1y

If anyone is on the fence about ordering from Bookoutlet. Don‘t be I just got 24(3 are not pictured cause they gifts for someone on here) books for $35 that are considered their scratch and dent and only one has a minor flaw the dust jacket on one has a small tear. All the rest are in brand new condition.

Thrift stores. Two of my locals sell paperbacks for $0.50 to $1 each, regardless of whether they're mass market or tpb. One also offers a volume discount (5 for $4).

I borrow far more books than I buy, though. If my library has it in their catalogue, there's a 90% chance I'll wait and get it from them--unless I need to up my haul so I get the volume discount, of course.

#bookishquestionoftheweek @BookishGirl06

Avanders Amazon ... I have lots of seconds though! Thriftbooks.com, bookoutlet.com (thanks to Litsy), local bookstores, b&n... 2y
mcipher If I'm buying books, I go to the Book Barn - huge used bookstore here in CT - or tag sales or whatever. But 99% of the time I get my books from the library. 2y
BookishGirl06 @mcipher I go with my family and friends to the book barn about once a year. We don't live close enough to go too often though (edited) 2y

Birdsong28 Waterstones, Amazon and a place in the UK which does cheap books called The Works.📖📚 2y
Jeg In op shops, Book Depository, Big W, Target , Kmart, local book shop. 2y
abookbumble Mostly Amazon, but when I have a spare evening, Strand Books and/or Kinokuniya. 2y
Smangela Salvation Army, goodwill, and library sales :) 2y
BookishJess Most of my print books are from Goodwill and some from library used sales. I also get ebooks which I get through Amazon. When I buy new, which is rare, I buy from Barnes & Noble online. 2y
Sjsherwood I buy mostly from abebooks. Free shipping, inexpensive books. And I can find almost everything I'm looking for. 2y
Billypar The Strand, Housingworks, assorted other NYC bookshops, and Barnes & Noble. And when traveling, probably goes without saying, but I find the nearest bookstore. 2y

Working my way through this list!

The_Heeler_Booklife I envy how small your list is...I have over 60 books on my written TBR list and I keep adding more to it. 😬 2y
maximoffs @allthingskayla I wish it was this small!!! I'm using this list to help me focus 😂 2y
The_Heeler_Booklife @steverogers lol looks like a good strategy and probably feels nice to cross out each name. 2y

maximoffs @allthingskayla I ended up filling up the whole list last night, and my goal is to only read books from that list until I'm done. Maybe I can focus this way! 2y
The_Heeler_Booklife @steverogers that sounds like a good goal. Right now I'm on a no buy because I 30ish physical books I need to read and one preorder in September, then later this year is my birthday and then Christmas. The husband would not like if I buy anymore books. Then, I have a ton of audiobooks on my list. I was hoping to finish my list by this month before school next month, but I think it is impossible. I wish you luck with your list. 😊 2y
maximoffs @allthingskayla thanks! You too! 2y

Who am I to argue? 😉😉

Crystalblu One should never argue with chocolate! ;) 2y
Birdsong28 @goodbyefrancie If the chocolate says go to a bookstore you must do without delay. 😂😂😂📖📚 2y
Texreader I'm with @Crystalblu and @Birdsong28 ! Better get going the sooner the better! Now I have to go by some Dove!!! 2y
goodbyefrancie @Crystalblu @Birdsong28 @Texreader I may have to escape this weekend! Two of my favorite things...books and chocolate! 2y

I prefer one at a time normally. Maybe if the second one has only short stories in it. #bookishquestionoftheweek

bookloo I do. Currently reading five. 😬🙈 2y
Kaylamburson I prefer one at a time, but I can do two if one is print and one is audio. Otherwise I confuse storylines! 2y
Cortg I always have 1 print, 1 audio and 1 serial reader going on at a time 2y

Scurvygirl I am reading five and an audiobook.😐 2y
samesfoley I never used to but since the beginning of this year I've been all about it! I usually do one print and one ebook--print for when I have more time and ebook for my commute and when I have a few min here and there 2y
PatriciaU I've usually got 2 or 3 going at once. 2y
Melissa_J I used to only read one book at a time, but I now usually have a couple on the go at once. I think my preference is for one at a time though. 2y

Rachel.Rencher I have to read more than one or I get bored 2y
nicole_in_neverland I usually only read one at a time, I only read two books at once if it's a slow week at work 2y
Cspen113 I keep more than one going and read them depending on my mood. Right now I have 4. 2y
Varshitha I started reading multiple books after I started working, one paperback, one ebook that I can carry around, one huge book which I get to read only few pages every week.. 2y
Aninski With so much going on here on Litsy (readalongs, book clubs) I recently started reading multiple books at the same time, but I feel like I end up not really getting into any of them... Definitely prefer reading one at a time, so I can really dive into each book. 2y
lildeb_8 I usually have at least two - one audio and one print book. Right now I have four going because I have summer reading for work. 2y
mrozzz Yessssss. One audio, one fiction, one memoir/non-fiction usually. 2y
Mccartershanon I've normally got an audiobook and a paper book going at the same time 2y
Avanders I ... *prefer* one at time, mostly bc I want to feel the joy of a fresh slate and a completely open choice... but I usually end up reading about 3-5 at once 😜 2y
Bandrea I can do maybe two at a time without feeling overwhelmed. But I always have an audiobook and a paper book together. 2y
ninjypants I have 3 going right now and I like being able to pick up any one of them depending on my mood 2y
TheBookStacker I have 3 going right now 2y
Jadams1776 I normally have more than one going at a time. I've always been that kind of reader. 2y
HippieChickHomeschool I like to have one audio, one print. 2y
Jhullie One book, one Audible book for walking or driving, and I have been doing the Harry Potter read-a-long. 2y
drokka Yes. Typically an audio book for when I'm doing things that require hands (cleaning, stitching, etc), one for commutes, one or two physical books at home. 2y
ReadingRover I listen to one on CD in the car, one on Audible while I'm walking dogs & doing non car stuff, one ebook on kindle and/or one print book. So usually about 3-4 are in rotation. 2y
bookdrunkard78 I usually have at least one audio and one physical/ebook going. Right now I'm working on three. 2y
TrishB Just one at a time for me 😀 2y
KaatjeH Reading one at a time😊 2y
Hestapleton Im currently reading maybe 8 books. A mix of physical books I own, library books, digital books, and audio books. 2y
minkyb Only 1 at a time. 2y
PirateJenny I'm reading 5 or 6 right now. I normally have at least 2--1 physical and 1 ebook. But I got caught up in 2 that I'm working on that aren't out till October so I downloaded the pdfs because I don't have time to read them at work. 2y
pocketmermaid I always prefer to be book monogamous, but it doesn't always work that way. I tend to read, all at once: a print book, an audio, an ebook, a graphic novel, and maybe a book of essays or short stories. 2y

Two bookstores in two days!! Both were amazing in different ways. I love old books and am super excited about the ones I found at Brattle today. And I'd never heard of Milan Kundera, but it sounded fantastic. I couldn't resist!!

can someone please tell me I really really shouldn't buy any new books? 🙈

Sarah83 Do you need some more? 😉 2y
saresmoore I fear you may have come to the wrong place for that particular pep talk! 2y
drokka The Books Anonymous group I believe is down the hall, to the right. This is the Book Buying Enablers group. 😉 2y

ju.ca.no @Sarah83 well I strongly believe that one cannot have to many books so the term "need" might not really work here? 2y

What stays with me now is not only the books I bought in Compendium but how its being, and its men and women, showed me that bookshops are immeasurably strange and that the mind reading next to mine inhabits a separate earth.

Bambolina_81 Fantastic quotation 😊 3y
Smarkies @Bambolina_81 ya! I think it sums up a book lovers relationship with bookshops. 😁 3y

A short memoir through bookshops. Anne Scott tells a little of her life and of Scotland through 18 Bookshops. Perhaps not the most riveting read but it did give some insight into Scottish history through books and bookshops.
