Where our English majors find work (initially)

Days in the life of a Barnes & Noble clerk.

Now for the heresy. Barnes & Noble came to Pueblo a couple of years ago, and that was A Good Thing. Yes, there were independent bookstores, a couple of them--tiny, understocked, no doubt undercapitalized. One went out of business. (There was also one store from a smaller, Colorado chain.) The new B&N seems to be doing well. People are in there, reading magazines, looking at books, drinking espresso, just like in Th' Big City. From a writer's viewpoint, I like to see the business of book commmerce in motion.
