Who likes to read books in bookstores without buying them at all? Do you feel guilty about it and somehow feel obliged to buy from them? Personally, I love to read books in bookstores when I don't have anything to do. I can spend about 14-21 hours per week reading in bookstores. In particular, the Barnes and Noble at the shopping mall near my place has a nice collection of books that I can read freely. Mostly I read either comic books or mangas but sometimes I can browse through newly released non-fictions as well. I know a lot of different bookstores have most of their comic books in plastic covers but that doesn't seem to be the case in my bookstore. However, somehow I feel obliged to buy from them and feel guilty if I don't. Of course, I would buy the books that are useful to have a physical copy of such as cookbooks or novels for my literature classes. It is a win-win solution for me and the bookstore. I know a lot of people like to spend a lot time reading in bookstores so please share me what do you feel about it.
