But I'l admit that I eventually became a Prime member, mainly for the free shipping and orders that showed up on my doorstep in just a day or two. Then one day I realized that I preferred to sit at my computer in air-conditioned comfort and shop, rather than making the rounds at the local mall. I'd reached out to pet the 800 pound gorilla and ended up feeding it.
I still patronize local bookstores, both the Christian ones and those that are secular. When there's something I have to try on (like shoes--that's a real problem for me), I head for the local stores. But there are times when it seems so nice to order online.
How about you? Have you gone over to the dark side? Do you have any ideas for the stores that have to compete with Amazon? I'd like to hear (and I suspect they would, too).
