Book stores in New York

When my co-workers ask me how my weekend was and my answer is that I went into town with a couple of girlfriends, they automatically assume that I went out clubbing or something cool like that.

Little do they know that this means that I’ve been hitting my favorite book stores with my best friends. We are all pretty much introverts with a passion for books and love to spend time together. Spending hours book stores across town. (Shhtttt…. Don’t tell my co-workers).
