The benefit of Brick and Mortar

My mother and I recently had some time to kill before the clothing store we were going to opened. So we decided to head down to Borders book store. Now I usually shop for books at Amazon.com because they are much cheaper, however I soon became very aware of the benefit of a B&M store. The employees are wonderfully knowledgeable and quick to give you the low down of what books are appropriate for kids. The employee that spoke with us gave us great reviews of books that I had never heard of and never would have looked at in the first place. There definitely is something to the saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”. He asked me how old my son was and what he had read before. He then promptly grabbed half a dozen books off the shelves and proceeded to tell me all about all of them. With Amazon you pretty much get the reviews on just the most popular books, not necessarily the most well written. I did not end up purchasing any books that day (because of the price) however I did pick up a really cool bookmark called Mark my time, which features a built in timer and stop watch. My son Rowan was always asking me how long had he been reading for. This way he can tell all by himself.
