Window Shopping Book Stores

Tonight, we went to Powell’s and Barnes & Noble. I much prefer going to a brick-and-mortar store. When I see a book that looks interesting, I take a picture of it so I can remember it later. These are a few I discovered tonight.

I was hoping to peruse Rob Bell’s latest book but didn’t realize until I got home that it’s not available for a few more days.

Have you read any of these? What do you think?

    Just now noticed your sub-title for your blog…love such honesty.

    I too have a huge stack by my bed so I know I do not need to look at any new books. But your list looks intriguing….the temptations of life!

    That subtitle “hot air powers the point” goes way back. It’s not just humility; it’s also a play on words that makes sense when you pronounce “blogan” like “blowgun.”

    Yes, books are fun. I’m always amazed when I read about e-readers killing reading. What?! Are authors going to quit writing because their words aren’t going to be printed on paper? Even if they did, there are already more books written than any of us can read in a lifetime.

    I walk around B&N taking notes on books on my phone (or downloading samples to my Kindle app), but hadn’t really thought of taking pictures. Doh! I may just have to switch up my reading list backlog procedures… thanks for the idea (and thanks for some good book ideas, too; I have not read any of those).

    Keep and open mind if you read the books I read. They’re not orthodox.

    On the other hand, if you only read stuff you know you already agree with, how are you going to learn something new?

    I used to use my stupid phone to take pictures in the book store. Now that I carry a camera virtually everywhere that’s easier to use, I use it. I suspect something like a smart phone would be best. Or maybe an app that could read the book’s barcode and add it to a list.
