Are You An Impulsive Book Buyer?
So when it comes to my book buying, I usually have a List of Planned Purchases. And I try not to drift too far (given that I'm cheap and all). But then there's that pretty book cover I pass on my way into the book store, or the book recommendation from a store clerk, or that evil bargain section with good mysteries and thrillers. And I always end up buying more books.
I'm not alone in my off-the-list buying--according to this Publishers Weekly article, 60 percent of children's book purchases at indie stores are impulse buys. That's a lot, huh?
How about you all? Do you plan your book purchases, or prefer to be wooed in the store?
