Guess who’s back? And for the love of all things chocolate, don’t you dare echo that then say “Shady’s back!” I will kill you if you do that, and it would be a shame to start the new year off with a murder I didn’t plan on committing.
Now, because I know the title got you all excited, let me explain it. When I say “No longer a virgin”, I mean something that requires an admission of pathetic proportions. You see, until recently, I, Snarky, was in fact… a Barnes and Noble virgin. I had never set foot into one of their stores, let alone bought anything from there. I was always a Borders shopper—it was closer to my house, there were more locations, and, come on, when you get bombarded with gift cards for a certain store year after year, you’re bound to form some kind of attachment.
Anyway, to make this short… Barnes and Noble. I was overjoyed to be in a physical book store, yet at the same time I was a little disappointed. There was no horror section in B&N, I didn’t care for the store layout, and, to top it off, since when is THIS a genre?
Yeah, I’m still kind of disgusted by that.
My trip wasn’t all negatives though. I picked up two new books (Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales and The Hunger Games [Don’t look at me like that. I have to see what all the fuss is about]), and fell head-over heels for this amazing display:
So the trip wasn’t a total waste of time, and since the store is fairly close to my house I see much money spending in my future. Oh, my poor, poor wallet…
So get ready for some updatin’! ;) No school until fall means I’ll have more free time on my hands, which I’ve decided I will sacrifice to this blog and not the Procrastination Gods. As such, I would love some requests for reviews and the like! I have a few I’m working on that will hopefully be up soon, including one visual novel post.
Now, comment, email, share, eat, sleep, and thanks for wasting your time with me!
