Hobotaku Budget Tip #1: Read Manga at the Bookstore

This is the most obvious and fundamental defining features of being a hobotaku - reading books at the bookstore. It also dovetails nicely into the other attributes of being Hobotaku:
- living in the States
- being economically unable to purchase all the manga you want to read

There are a few things you can do to make this experience more pleasant for you and others:
1. Plan the manga you're going to read for immediate pickup
2. Go with other people, that way if one of you purchases something, you won't get dirty looks (also, you won't have to sit by yourself)
3. Sit someplace out of the way, like under a table, or in the cafe section of the bookstore
4. Get a couple of manga for perusing, as soon as you're done with them, replace them back on the shelves (to benefit the store, and any other hobotaku in the area)
5. Be courteous - it is the Hobotaku way!
