Read this out loud to someone who you think should go to a bookstore.
Hey you. Yeah, you. Go get lost, but in a good way. Get lost in a used bookstore.
Leave time at the door and wander through the tall, tall aisles and smell the must.
Run your fingers over some book spines without even picking out any in particular, just to feel all of the little marks of wear and tear they’ve experienced through countless readers who journeyed into their worlds
(because that’s what books do, or so you’ve heard tell...)
Then finally, start picking some out. Grab some big books and some small books, paperbacks, and playscripts so thin they are practically leaflets.
And don’t forget to pick up at least one huge hardcover tome that might crumble into dust if you sneeze on it.
Find as many interesting-looking books as your arms can carry, in every color of the rainbow that you can see, and plop down onto the old rocking chair in the corner.
Now begin to really examine them... feeling the pages as they turn, staring at the shapes of the words, taking in whatever elaborate illustrations might surprise you from time to time...
Do this, because people are watching.
They are watching, and they are judging.
And this is a GREAT way to trick them into thinking you can read.
