BEDA Day 13: Adventures in Barnes & Noble

I am getting this post in just under the wire to keep me perfect for BEDA! woo hoo! I haven't had a day off work since last Tuesday and it has been hard to keep up but the fact that I have done it is making it all the sweeter. Because I just got home from work and have to get a post up you get a fun story about my trip to Barnes and Noble this morning before I went to work.

I was actually out shopping for a dress for my college graduation but of course I had to stop in at Barnes and Noble...well...because I was there. I was limiting myself to two books and standing there trying to narrow it down when a girl was chatting with her father and saying she had one book picked out but couldn't decide on a second. I was standing in front of a shelf with a paperback copy of Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway (my review) on it and I turned to her and said "You should try this one. It is a really great book and there are a bunch of quotes on the back from reviewers who loved it too if you don't believe me."

She looked at me a little blankly at first and then said "thanks, but how do you know about the quotes you were looking at a totally different book."

My response. "Because I am a book blogger and a bunch of the quotes are from book bloggers that I am lucky to call friends and who are awesome."

She said thanks and bought the book. I am a book pusher. This is my story for the day. I really hope she likes it.

I know, isn't it amazing how all those great bloggers ended up on the back cover? So cool! Plus I really like the paperback cover. Way to go, Erika Lynn!

Now see - I just assumed everyone would want my unsolicited opinions on what they should read - you mean that's pushy? ;0)

This is a fantastic story, go you! I do the same thing when I see someone in a bookstore considering a book that I loved. I'm a complete introvert otherwise, but I'll talk to complete strangers about books anytime.
