It was the best of times, it was the saddest of times. School time has come around again! We spent our last weekend of freedom crossing off some last minute supplies.
My daughter and I are both bookworms. In fact I think we are the Queen and Princess of bookworm land. We love to read. One of our favorite stores to hangout in together is Barnes & Noble. With a huge selection for both her and I, we can spend hours in there! When I told her I wanted to go pick up a few things from there she couldn't wait to go, especially since I let her know that she could pick out some new books!
She is attending a new school this year and at Open House her teacher told us that daily reading was assigned. At least 20 minutes a day. We both giggled about that, 20 minutes? That's chump change to the likes of us!
This store isn't just a haven for bookworms but an ideal place to get ready for school. From the supplies to the books, whether you homeschool, grade school, or attend college, Barnes & Noble has what you need.
We had a blast browsing through the selections, picking out books for her and the Pirate. Star Wars workbooks? How cool is that?
Then we stopped for a treat at the in-store cafe. What a nice place to sit and enjoy a good book. and a cookie
Whether you fall on the elated, crying your eyes out, or somewhere in between side of things, one thing we can all agree on about back to school season is it can cost a lot! The price just seems to go up every year. Wouldn't it be nice to have a way to earn money back for those purchases?
Barnes & Noble's MasterCard is the best credit card for parents, college students, homeschoolers, teachers, and/or book lovers like me who are purchasing textbooks, books, and supplies not only during back to school season but anytime during the year!

With the average cost for books and supplies last year coming in at $1,225 for public colleges and $1,244 for private colleges I know we can all use any help we can get!
