Do you buy books while on vacation/holiday?
Do you have favourite bookstores that you only get to visit while away on a trip?
What/Where are they?
I have a notebook that I keep in the car, everywhere we travel I jot down notes about the various bookstores we stop at. Any information I think would come in handy I add (what they specialize in, if they have a website, etc.)
Even if a bookstore only had a few items I'm interested in, I will make sure to stop again next-time just in case.
In the last few years this notebook has become huge - listing shops from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Montreal, Quebec - which is our normal route at least once a year. I also keep track of many stores in the eastern states that we visit occasionally - Maine, Massachusetts, NY, NJ, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
I don't have any particular favourites because to me most bookstores change inventory so quickly, you never know what you'll find.
