A bookseller’s rant for the day

February 3, 2012

If Amazon has succeeded at one thing, it has been to frustrate booksellers everywhere by giving customers unreasonable expectations about what the limits of a bookstore’s capacity really is. Just because the book your Uncle Pete wrote is available online doesn’t mean I can or should stock it in my store. Physics exists, people. And bookstores don’t have a special exception to the rule that two pieces of matter can’t occupy the same space at the same time. Nor do I work in a TARDIS.
