Oh, fall. It's always the season -- which officially starts tomorrow, btw -- where I attempt to reverse the brain damage caused by a summer full of beer and big, dumb movies. This usually involves reading stuff, like books. And my favorite place to do my fall reading in Park Slope is the Barnes & Noble on 7th Ave & 6th Street. It’s like the library, only more comfortable and more likely to have the book I’m looking for. Also, I prefer the smell of new books to old books.
And yes, I know that makes me one of those freeloaders who hogs the comfy chairs. I know I’m the reason that “new” book you bought looks like maybe it was already read once. I had my grubby little fingers all over those page. But that’s just too bad for you. It’s fall, bitches, and I need to get my brain exercising on. You can have your Tea Lounges and newly-renovated Public Libraries, but the basement floor of the Barnes & Noble is all mine after Labor Day.
The irony here is that this paticular Barnes & Noble opened during the start of my 11th grade school year, and I was loved it for its ample supply og Cliffs Notes. These days, come September I park my ass there to actually read books. Welcome, fall. It’s good to have you back.
Where do you like to curl up with a good book once the summer partying is done?
