When I'm in the city, there's a bookstore on 2nd that I always pass on my way to the bank (or starbucks). Without fail, I cannot resist the urge to stop and take a look at which books are on sale. Even if I'm not planning on buying a book I have to comb through each shelf, just in case there was a book that piqued my interest. I have yet to buy a book from that sale rack, but I'm hopeful. I love this particular bookstore. It seems locally owned and the people who work there are great. They look just hipster/nerd enough to look like they love books but not to the point that they're that snobby/elitist type you often find in San Francisco. I love how the books are on display outside like they are. I love how I find the most unlikely people thumbing through pages of paperbacks. I love it.
This is one of my favorite parts of running my errands.
