When I buy books, I’ll be completely honest, I go for convenience.
This is why I end up at the Barnes & Noble by my job, or clicking through Amazon to purchase my books.
As a person on a budget, it’s just what needs to happen.
But since starting this blog and attending various events in NYC, I’ve had the opportunity to visit various independent bookstores and they instantly brought back the romantic visions of Meg Ryan’s job in the earlier scenes of You’ve Got Mail.
Despite my stops in B&N or Amazon, I’ve always been drawn to the cozy bookstore. It’s such a New York thing, ya know?
This is why today’s news… the adorable Books of Wonder hitting bad times … is just so unfortunate.
While I’ve only been there a handful of occasions, I’ve been lucky enough to attend events with authors and get real face-to-face time to chat and discuss their books. (After I got over my shyness, of course.) The events are always personal and fun, and a great way to deepen anyone’s love of reading.
You really can’t find anything else like it.
So I’m asking you to check out all the details about why Books of Wonder is trying to raise a minimum of $100,000 in the next 30 days.
Remember any small donation helps! It’s so important to show support for independent bookstores.

Thanks for listening!
