I often go to bookstores without buying any books. I go there just to read books. I think I can achieve the best concentration by reading in bookstores because I have to evaluate the book and decide whether to buy it or not in a limited time. As soon as I pick up a book from the bookshelf, I first glance at the cover page, then the index and then the introduction. It takes five to ten minutes per book for me to do all these processes and I can eventually grab the outline of the book. In most cases it is enough for me and I rarely want to purchase or own it. I once bought any books I was interested in, which caused a terrible situation. That is, I was surrounded by numerous books which interested me before and which I hadn't read yet. This was a very stressful situation both mentally and physically because such books threatened me in my brain and in my room. Now I am a bad customer for bookstores because I rarely purchase books. In this way, I can save money and retain my inner peace. In fact, there's no more space to hold books on my bookshelf. The only problem is that I can't use this method for English books. It is too hard for me to grasp the outline in ten minutes in English. So my room is getting filled with English books now.
