I've noticed I've been able to read through whole comic books and sometimes more than often normal books when my mom used to shop. My other friend and I got into the habit of stopping in a bookstore while our parents would go shop in a store for themselves. It actually helps time go a lot faster when you have something to read.
That and, I ended up reading an entire end (20-26) of comic book I used to collect so then I didn't need to buy the rest. My mom actually got in the habit of letting me relax in the library while she went shopping or went to an art museum or something completely unappealing to me :3
Its kinda nice break from life. I know when my roommate stops in a music store, if there's a bookstore I'll end up finishing a book around the time she's got her selection ready for check out.
Also, If any of you have kids that like japanese comics (manga*) libraries have started collecting those. So its really nice if you need to save a few pennies to check to see if your library has them in stock.
