Barnes & Noble – Augusta, Maine
There’s Something About Barnes & Noble When I started my On The Road series, I told myself to stick to writing about bookstores, cafes, and hangouts that are underrated, exceptionally special to me, and on my non-physical bookish bucket list. From the title of this blog post, you are probably thinking, “way to veer off track,” and you’re right, sort of. The reason I’m making an exception for this Barnes & Noble is because it’s the only B&N in Maine (even our neighbor New Hampshire has four), so trips there are a little more exciting than if there were more locations in the state (I tell myself).
Adding to and amassing a book collection isn’t just about owning everything your favorite author has written or purchasing books you’ve read and loved; it’s also about filling your shelves with beautifully jacketed books, even if that means buying multiple copies of a novel. This installment of my #AtoZChallenge celebrates this behavior (E is for editions).
