Sunday Salon - Looking forward
If you are wondering why I said this, its because I did my shopping for them this weekend. I am so glad that Chapters has the option of purchasing books online with one's debit card, at least if you are member of one of Canada's five major banks. It also makes purchasing books a little too easy and therefore very tempting, but it sure makes Christmas shopping that much easier (and I also get a little something for myself while I am at it).
Its not that I don't enjoy going to the mall and look at the various things that are available, its just that I don't like the hassle of going from store to store or going to a larger store in another community. I like to get my Christmas shopping out of the way as soon as I can and if it means that I do it Remembrance Day long weekend and I do it online, it makes enjoying the rest of the season that much more. I just don't like the crowds that come with going to a brick and mortar store (and its surprising that with the advent of online shopping in the past 15 years, that people still go to physical stores to get things; its almost like the internet has become a place where people look and compare before they purchase something). I want to go to Starbucks and get a drink and read a book (if I can find a spot to read) and just relax and not have to deal with the crowds that I know that are going to be there.
Anyways, I hope you have a relaxing Sunday, however you plan on spending it and hopefully you can relax on your Sunday as best your can.
Before I forget, remember that the Bag of Bones readalong starts today. Hope you can join!
