Benefits to Shopping in Bookstores and Buying Print Books

There is something about going in to a book store and feeling your eyes light with childlike joy at the many rows of books on display. There is something about a book, an actual physical book in your hands while you read. There are so many apps and readers that exist these days, but nothing beats the feel and smell of a book. Maybe everyone doesn’t feel like this, but any true book lover knows they’ve spent hours hanging out in a Barnes & Nobles store like it was a library.

Book stores are research centers, gathering places, reading place, internet café and a place to meet your favorite author. Book retailers have become so many things over the decades since they rose to popularity. Of course, there is the convenience of going online and purchasing a book but there is always the fun of getting a book in the mail and finding out it wasn’t exactly what you were hoping for.

The Nook, Kindle and Kobo have been popular e-readers within the U.S. allowing people to purchase electronic books onto the device. These devices are fantastic and allow people to read wherever they are. They allow people to download thousands of books onto the device to read at their leisure. You don’t have to worry about physically having space for a book library with one of these e-readers. There are even many e-reader apps that exist but any true book lover will lose interest in their e-reader at some point.

According to a report on Authorearnings.com print books are making a huge come back. Print books allow for fewer distractions to children whereas the e-books for kids are usually interactive. There are candles, air-fresheners and perfumes dedicated to the scent of a book because people love that smell so much. People are more likely to pass on a physical book to a friend or a loved one over a digital copy, just like people are more likely to gift a printed book too. Plus, when it comes to comic books or any sort of art story books nothing is going to beat having the paper in your hands.

One of the great things about book retailers over grocery or convenience stores that sell books is that book stores offer coupons. Many places have books for sale but not all of them offer coupons specifically for books. Depending on the time of the month the new release books will have a discounted price, plus depending on the coupon that you have you will get an additional percentage off on your price.

Another bonus to buying books at a book retailer is most have membership rewards. With membership rewards you pay a small fee from time to time to allow you to get discounts on book, snacks or whatever else you may want to buy from a book store. The membership can give an extra discount on discounted prices and existing coupons. Membership also usually allows the customer to get free shipping on products they couldn’t find instore.
