Walking into a book store and trying to walk back out without books....

Every time I go to the bookstore, I always end up buying one book. I have no self control! Have you ever had this problem, or do you have iron control?

The only thing that can stop me is not having any way of paying for it ... which is more often than not.

I only buy a book if they have the one I went in there to buy.

That's why I love going to the library.

Same, I go to the library and prevent that from happening, but I also collect comics, so it's difficult.

Well these days I don't get to go to a book store often, so that curbs the incoming book flow.
...but then there's days when I go to the library and they have a sign over three tables piled with books you can buy to keep that says "fill a bag (store bag) for $1!" and I pile that bag as full as I can, usually walking out with one or two bags with a good 8-10 books each. xD

I usually look up which books I want before I go to the book store, and then I make a list to take in with me. I hate going through tons of books looking for something good and ending up disappointed with no book. So usually I do leave with a book or two, unless the ones I want are not in stock.

I also have an ereader now, so I’m not in the bookstore a whole lot anymore. Although I love book stores! I could spend ages in there.

This. I am a total bibliophile. I have to go to the library or I'd be in big trouble. I still come out with around 10 books each trip

I've done it, but it's rare and I usually end up getting more next time

I can usually not buy any books because I don't carry around much money, but I always end up with about 10 more books on my to read list.

I'm picky about books but if I make the trip I want to make it worth it by finding a good book to read...
kindle pretty much solved that problem though 8)

I've found that the only way to walk out of a bookstore without any books is to not bring and money. :o)

Hah, I thought this post was going to be seriously about how ya felt walking into the place and NOT buying anything. It makes me feel weird, walking out of any store without buying anything, so there are times that I buy something even if I don't really want it so I don't feel "weird".
