Rae walked fast towards those familiar green and white neon lights inside the mall, that means she is going to her favorite place in the world; a small thrift bookstore which she always loved going to.
She started reading at a young age, as a kid she would always ask her mom for books and loved them.
The magazines were always the first ones she looked at, all lined up very neatly covered in plastic and placed on a big white bookshelf. Running her fingers through the tops of the magazines, she breezed through the covers looking for what she liked.
“There’s nothing good today. Weird.” Rae said while continuing to breeze through all the magazine rows then working her way to the books, the colorful spines lighting up before her eyes.
If it weren’t for these books and the countless songs in her life she would go insane, books and music were her saviors (aside from her friends) from the tough times, they easily make her feel better. Some people prefer shopping for bags, watches, shoes, and clothes but for Rae she’ll just grab book after book after book and immerse herself in them.
“There we go.” Rae smiled and reached over to grab a book with an interesting title. “Seems like a good read.” Books with interesting titles always grabbed her attention first more than famous authors.
Grabbing another book she paid for her choices with a giddy heart, making a mental note to read more.
“See you next time friend” She whispered while walking away from away from the store.
