Books and Magazines

Books and magazines contain a wealth of information. Learning new things, finding information needed to help with projects or simply a way to escape from the everyday world are some of the many reasons why people read books and magazines.  Reading books is also a great way to spend time with your children for fun, or to share what you have learned with family and friends.

Here are some questions you might ask while at a bookstore.

"What are some of the bestsellers?"
"What are some new releases?"
"Where can I find books by a particular author?"
"Where is the children's section?"
"Do you have books on animals?"
"Do you offer a membership for customers?"
"Does this magazine have monthly or yearly subscription?"
"Can I get a subscription sent to my business?"
"Can I reserve a book?"

You can also make many statements about books to your friends.

"I just finished reading a book on money management.  It was very informative."
"I love reading.  If I am not out, I am usually in my room reading a book."
"My favorite types of books are autobiographies."

"The new fiction bestseller was fun.  You have to read it."
"Buying books as a present is not appreciated by the kid, but the parents usually love them."
"I really like getting books as a gift."
