New York – #8 – Barnes & Noble

New York – #8 – Barnes & Noble

While looking for a store to buy postcards or fancy paper from, I stumbled upon Barnes & Noble on  East 86th Street and Lexington Ave. Like any book lover, I totally freaked out. I stopped my dad in his tracks, took a picture of the store and told him we had to go inside. My dad looked at me weird and just said okay. In Puerto Rico the only book store we had with a wide variety of literature from topics to genres was Borders. But as you all know Borders was closed donw. I wasn’t even able to get books on sale because I found out too late. I though only the Borders in Plaza Las Americas mall was closing. New York – #8 – Barnes & NobleAnd so I have been condemned to buying books online with frequent ridiculous shipping prices. Not mention I hate having to wait more than 2 weeks for a book. At least more small bookstores are being opened in Puerto Rico. And so this is why I freaked out. Because I have never been to Barnes & Noble before and because I missed just being able to visit a great bookstore. I went inside and totally loved it all. The wide selection of books per genre, the design of the store, the fact that it had 2 floors, etc. Though the prices were a bit too high, I was able to find nice postcards to send to my friends back in Puerto Rico. I was able to buy a book as well but not in the store. Good thing buying things online in New York is faster and cheaper than Puerto Rico. I was able to buy Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell on Amazon, and I received it in 2 days. 🙂
