Do you buy books while on vacation/holiday?

Do you have favorite bookstores that you only get to visit while away on a trip?

What/Where are they? – BTT

I actually do not go on travel vacations a lot. My last big holiday and travel was four years ago, and I did buy four books during that three weeks I was in China. If only I did have favourite book stores on my travel spots, but the economics prevents that. I bought books that last trip because I didn’t bring any with me, and I was getting a tad bored in those times when we weren’t going everywhere. That’s when I read Dumas’s The Three Musketeers and where I got Beloved. Just with any place, I buy books when they are usually below a certain price so I like book sales, used book stores, or in this case, where my purchasing power is a bit stronger than in Western book stores.
