So, we all shop at Walmart, Target and the very rare Kmart. If your like me, even if you enter one of these stores for just 1 item, then you have to walk down the book aisle. It really is an addiction. So, which store will I usually end up buying from and who has the better selection in my opinion.
I live in the boondocks, so all we really have is a tiny Walmart. The book selection at this location isn't great. However, I have seen a few that have great selections. Either way, if I am looking for just a specific author, Maybe 3 out of 5 times I will find it there. They keep is stocked decently, but not with the newest and greatest books that I am looking for. Like I said, my Walmart is small, but even when visiting others, I still find they have a lot of the same books that I have at mine. Needless to say, I can usually walk through the Walmart aisle and leave without a book in my cart.
The next closest place to me, is the ever so rare Kmart. I have to say, Kmart really does have a good book selection. If I am in the book buying mood, I can usually get one from there without a problem. I can usually find a specific book I am also looking for, even if it has just come out. They have a good size selection, or at least at the one near me. As I said, Kmart is very rare now a days, and I have no idea how other Kmarts are.
Finally, If I want to travel a little ways, I will come across Target. Hands down they have the best selection. I will give them that award. However, there prices are a bit steeper. Where I can find the same book say at Kmart for 5.99, its usually 7.99 at Target.
So, If I am usually looking for a book, I like to try Kmart first before heading to a fancy book store. Besides, all three easily feed my need to just take a look, even if I am not buying.
Happy Monday fellow book lovers! And tell me, who has the best selection to you?
