How Your Bookseller Really Feels About You

When stores are about to go out of business, they offer that rare environment where you can hear what employees in the service sector think about you, the customer, even while they're still working. It's like the difference between studying chimpanzee behavior in a zoo and actually going to the rainforest to live with them, Goodall-style. It's a total win.

I did get some pretty sweet books from their sale, though. Grapes of Wrath, The Warmth of Other Suns, and Eeeee Eee Eeee (actual name of the title). Anyone else score anything?
