What’s the furthest you’ve ever gone to get something to read? (Think extremes as well as miles—wrangling a ride from a stranger to a distant bookstore just to get the newest book from a favorite author?) If your absolute favorite author (living or dead) was coming out with a brand new book tomorrow, how far would you go, what would you do to get a copy? From the archives.

There is no bookstore in my community. I know. It's shameful. The nearest Barnes & Noble is 3 hours and 30 minutes south of here. And it's a trip I make regularly. Since I use my Nook almost exclusively, I don't have to feel the rush of going to the bookstore to pick up the latest books. I can download instantly. I do pre-order books, though. For instance, when Harper Lee finally released To Kill A Mockingbird in digital and audio formats, I pre-ordered both.
