a trip to the bookstore

Spread the love

Books are this mum’s absolute hearts! No trip to the mall is ever complete without stopping by one. Plus, it is an activity both me + the little man enjoys immensely! I get this certain feel of contentment + peace whenever I am surrounded by all those wonderful books, even if I won’t get to buy them in the end. Browsing through them + savoring the familiar scent of printed pages wafting through my nose is just sheer bliss!

It has been a few weeks since I’ve been to the bookstore + I cannot wait to visit one very soon. Tomorrow, I hope, if all our plans fall into place. I’ll be doing an errand in the afternoon with the little man + my bro, then we’ll be hitting the mall afterwards to meet up with my friend, Jack, who is also Jared’s godmother. I will grab the chance to make a beeline to the nearest bookstore in between that. I’d like to check out some more postcards for my postcrossing hobby, + who knows what other treasure I’d find there tomorrow. I’d probably get some envelopes + stickers, too.

The bookstore is brimming with wonderful items, that I can’t just help but hoard whenever I visit. Gone are those days when all you see are racks upon racks of boring + impersonal school supplies. Now you’d find wonderfully-made planners + notebooks. You will also stumble upon specialty papers + uber-kawaii items for arts + crafts. + loads of beautiful albums for scrapbooking, too. You’d also probably discover a lovely lanyard or two, or hard-to-find collectible cd’s or software for ID cards, maybe. + if you are lucky, a sale or two!

Oh well, I really look forward to my bookstore trips, it is one of my simple pleasures. Plus, Jared also has the time of his life browsing through racks + choosing books + stuff to look at! 🙂  Sadly, I do not have photographs of our trips there. But I plan to take photos next time + I will be sure to post them here when I do 🙂
