Border's in Cary

From Sarah C.:

Next door to Monkey Joe's in Cary is a slightly calmer activity to enjoy - Borders bookstore. Tucked into the back is their kids section. Filled with a vast amount of books and gifts, it also offers tables to sit and read at as well as an activity table.

Storytimes are offered Wednesdays at 11am. D and I arrived too late, but had a great time anyway. We enjoyed looking at the board books and having our "own" storytime - I read out loud while D pointed and babbled. Definitely a great way to get out of the house and the heat.

A perk for tired mommies (and daddies too), there is a coffee shop at the front where you can pick up a cup of joe to enjoy while browsing or for the drive home.

1751 Walnut Street

I used to love shopping, and browsing, at Borders. Now they have more toys than they do books. And they aren't separate like they are at Barnes and Noble. So, I don't bother going there any more.

It is true, many more toys nowadays at Borders. Not the best place for book shopping, but still an entertaining place to beat the heat for something different. I prefer to actually book shop at local places like Ali Cat and Purple Crow, but they don't have the espresso bars. ;)
