Barnes and Noble Rocks

My kids love library's and bookstores. It's such a shame that thing are going digital. There's just something about the smell of a book.

We took them to Barnes and Noble for a story time. I know Mica's getting a little old for story time. I think it's important that older kids have story time to.

Isaak always loves having his big brother at his side.

There was only 3 kids - including mine that joined in their superhero story time. That's kind of sad. They go through the work of making a poster, putting the poster up, posting it on their site, printing color sheets, and getting someone to read the book. All for 3 kids. I know a lot is done on a corporate level, but still.

Maybe it's because they don't have all the bells and whistles that other free events have. They could give a book away in a drawing.


The boys enjoyed it.

While they listened we shopped.

We got Mica 3 comic books from 2 series: Amulet and Bone. I was finding it difficult that some comic books are way too easy, while others have adult content in them. Mica needed something in the middle. A nice lady that works there pointed me towards these 2 series. They are perfect. I ordered the first book in the Amulet series - as they didn't have it. He got the 1st Amulet book and the 1st Bone book for his birthday. The 2nd Amulet book is being held for Christmas time. I'll probably ask Aunt Angela to get him the 2nd Bone book for Christmas as well.

I was never into comic books. Mica is. It's too early to tell if Isaak is. He's not into reading very much unless we read to him. We'll soon find out.

Did you, or do you like comic books?

By the way sign up for Barnes and Noble's free birthday club - ask them about it. They send a coupon for a free dessert every time it's one of your kid's birthdays. This is the 2nd year we've enjoyed a sweet treat.

That is sad only 3 kids showed up! We went to The Fault In Our Stars event that our BN held a few months back and it was packed. I am not sure how the smaller book readings do though as we haven't been to those since my kids don't like to be read to.

Only 3 kids, huh? That is a little sad. Book stores have to compete with so much going on.

I think the closest Barnes and Nobel to us is in Erie. Pretty far.

That's a bummer that only a few kids showed up.
