First, a welcome to my two new followers! Y'all rock!
Am I the only one that salivates when I enter the bookstore?
Seriously, I open the door, walk in, and the drool just starts drippin. I walk immediately to the Christian Fiction section (or just to the regular ole fiction section when I'm going to LifeWay.)
I'm finding picking out a book VERY difficult lately. I want to read them ALL. It's so much fun interacting with other authors, and I want to buy all their books and read them!
But, alas, my wallet screams in protest, as does my budget that I'm trying to live by.
I found the GREATEST section (for me anyway) at my local Books-a-Million the other day. It was marked CLEARANCE. A bargain-hunter by nature, I ventured over, sure that I wouldn't find any of the books I'd like. I was surprised though to see several authors name's I knew. All of the books were ones that had been out a few years, probably big sellers for a while so they stocked many, but then after the first year or so was over, they were left with a surplus. Part of me felt guilty buying them. Do authors still receive royalties off of Clearance books?!? If anyone knows the answer to that I'd love to hear it!
How do YOU go about choosing what books to buy? Am I the only one who has a love affair with the local bookstore?
