The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Is it difficult to find new books in local bookstores?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
I never really thought about this because I love browsing through books, but I guess I do have trouble finding new releases at my local bookstore. The Barnes and Noble about 15 minutes away has everything I could ever want but my little independent bookstore – Main Street Books – isn’t always that predictable. They can order anything I want but that usually costs so much more than if I just get online from one of the national chains.
But what I do love about my local bookstore is the uniqueness and it’s dedication to local and all North Carolina authors. It’s also right next to the local coffee shop – Summit Coffee – and across the street from the library. It’s the perfect area for whiling away a few happy hours.
