A very long time! My DH and I could both spend forever in a book store (if we don't have the kiddo with us).

Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?
Have a question or need support? BTDT and have wisdom to share?

I can spend hours deciding between this book or that. I love the smell of bookstores!

I've never gotten funny looks from the length of time spent in bookstores, but I do have a habit of sitting down on the floor if no chairs to flick through a book before buying, and people have looked at me funny for that lol.

I used to spend hours but I can't even remember the last time I was able to go kidfree. Now, trips have to be quick :\

I can spend several hours if I'm by myself. If I'm with my DH, it has to be quicker, though, because he's not a reader.

lord I havent been in so long. There is a budget book store down the road from me that trades books... ive lived here nearly 4 years and havent gone...cuz i always have a kid with me. I want to go soooooooo bad. I took Mason at 3 yrd old to the library... wont do that again... lol

If I had my way I would be there for hours and just wait for the funny looks.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my gorgeous siggie!
