Ha, ha…I live in the country in a small town. I start out over by the desk and chat with the ladies first…then I start wandering around. Usually the new releases first but most times I have books waiting for me so I don't really need to look around :wink:

I tend to go towards the fiction section most of the time, but there are times when I go into every section.

Usually the Young Adults collection because off my teenagers. If I were to ever have a visit kid free I would probably go to non-fiction and look for books on history. :)

New books section first, then straight to mystery!

I make a beeline to the horror section, if they have one. If not, I head straight to wherever Stephen King may be.

It depends on my mood. If I am escaping something stressful in life then I go for a mystery. If I need a human perspective I go for the non fiction. I am never disappointed with a historical fiction novel no matter what my mood. :)

I gravitate towards the YA section like a magnet. I just can't help myself. I'm a YA who loves all things YA!

Mainly I head towards the Young Adult/Teen section, but on some occasions I check out the Classic books.
