Cheap Date Ideas: Attend a Book Reading
Even if you're not a total bookworm, a bookstore date is a smart and cheap date idea—it's quiet and entertaining, and will give you time (remember that?) to browse a few chapters of the book you've been dying to read. And keep in mind—bookstores have plenty of hidden nooks to sneak smooches from your smokin', intellectual-type guy. Wink!
If you feel like being read to for a change, attend a book reading! Check out the events calendar at your local bookstore and catch a book reading by one of the store's featured authors. It'll give you a chance to kick back, relax and absorb some local (or national, depending on the author!) flavor. And to hold hands with your favorite dude, of course.
End the evening with a cup of joe and a dessert-for-two from the bookstore's cafe, and toast to your brilliantly cheap date idea. Cheers! You're saving money!
You just might leave your bookstore date feeling inspired to start a book club with other moms or even your mate (that means extra alone-time!). A neighborhood book club will squeeze some grown-ups-only time into your hectic mommy schedule—and keep you on top of your reading!
