years ago ... but in just the last year they've really taken off. book stores are seeing an impact across the country ... including right here in the silver state. ... you can find adult coloring books just about anywhere. at stores like barnes and noble ... they are seeing them fly off the shelves. stock "it has become so popular, we can't keep the books in stock." but they're much different than the coloring books you might have grown up with. full of detailed designs and intricate patterns ... you may find yourself spending a lot of time on a single page. stock "it does help you develop some fine motor skills that perhaps we've lost a little bit with that technology age." and it seems that adults of all ages can appreciate them. barnes and noble recently held a coloring event at all of its stores nationwide. at the one in reno ... it attracted a wide age range. stock "it was across the board. there were women in their 40's, women in their 50's, there were men, teenage boys and children." therapists are even finding that coloring can have mental health benefits for some people.
