Barnes and Noble is a magical place. Not only can you go in to find coffee, notebook, greeting cards, and movies, music, and gift items...but you can find books.

Now, the selection of books isn't as wide and varied as Barnes & Noble dot com. But it's the small details that make the trip exciting.

From pouring over a tome of a comic encyclopedia for the one or two pictures of your favorite character to the hidden poetry section in the corner, finding the books you love in print on a bookshelf is amazing.

Listen, I collect Kindle books. But no Kindle book can give me the same secret joy of holding a brand new Brunch at Bobby's book with a soft imaginary smell of Sharpie because it's been signed by the Bobby Flay.

That was magical.
