3 weeks ago, I was looking for a Starbucks where I could pull over and use the restroom while the Dude got coffee. I found one and it turned out to be attached to a Barnes and Noble. I told the Dude not to let me stay long, so I only walked out with one hardback (from the bargain books) and a new paperback that I had read a review of.
Tonight, I went to the library's website to reserve a book that wasn't on the shelf the last time I visited. Apparently no library in the county owns the book, so I went to amazon.com to buy it. It was only $9.00, so in about a minute and a half I found another book on my list and a third book recommended by amazon to give me the $25 total needed for free shipping.
Hey, at least I don't collect Manolo Blahniks.
