Last week the Husband and I had a “bookstore date,” which is a euphemism for “cheap date,” but nonetheless a variety we enjoy.
We used to do it quite a bit, when we had very little money for going out and weren’t confident a babysitter would survive our three boys for more than an hour or two.
So we go to a Barnes & Noble (or somewhere less mainstream if we can), get coffee and sit and flip through magazines. What could be more relaxing? The Husband goes in for world news, high finance, Linux or Ubuntu publications and (stressful, imo) stuff like that. To be fair, he also picks up the latest copy of Bass Player and a few other music mags.
We read while we’re there, and are careful to put everything back where it belongs, like the good scouts we are. But it’s really hard for me to leave without Bust (“For Women with Something to Get Off Their Chests” and only $4.99 woo!), so this time I didn’t.
Truly indulgent, I know.
So what are the first five magazines you pick up to flip through as soon as you walk in a bookstore? Leave me a comment and let me know!
