reading nook

When my brother and I were kids, my mom often took us to the local library. I'd create my own reading nook between the stacks and shelves and would spend hours flipping through pages, combing through book spines, and selectively stacking the ones I'd check out.

Bookstores have become my kids' reading nook of choice. Case in point: Barnes and Nobles. Do they not have the coolest children's section or what?

I should probably support our local library, especially since there may come a day when libraries become obsolete. But when B&N is closer, more prevalent, more kid-friendly and easier to find than our local branch, I find myself choosing this convenience over my conviction and my need for nostalgia.
