I was in a chain bookstore recently. They didn’t have a “Horror” section. But they had a section — not a shelf, but a freakin SECTION! — labeled “Paranormal Teen Romance.” Please shoot me.
LOL!!! A whole section dedicated to *gag* sparkly vamps and acne ridden werewolves!!
I think bookstores are becoming obsolete. I had a small used bookstore in my coffee shop. I sold books for ONE dollar and gave a ticket – if they returned the book, they could get another for free.
Didn’t work. At all.
I had maybe 2 or 3 regular customers.
Books have lost their appeal to many people who are hooked on Nanos, Kindles, Nooks and whatever else. You can now read a book on your cell phone for crying out loud. Bleh.
I’ll miss the days of meeting friends at Borders for books, coffee and discussions. But then again, I miss disco too.
No matter what technical innovations come along, I’ll always love books. Even though I’ve become addicted to listening to audiobooks on my iPod, my heart still sings at the sight of a shelf packed with dusty paperbacks.
Disco? Don’t know about that one. I just can’t make the white leisure suit thing work for me. And believe me, I’ve tried.
