What's your favorite thing to shop for?

Books. I can spend hours in even a mediocre bookstore reading the first chapter of a book. Nive cover art, interesting rear jacket, and I've got to read the first chapter to determine whether the author's style seems worth the price. With movies and video games, one gets just the cover art and backside commentary unless there is a demo in the store.
My reading interests are varied, so I do not run out of options easily. I try to avoid bookstores because they destroy my ability to have a productive day. This is especially true of Borders and Barnes & Noble.
