Disappearing Chairs at Bookstores

planetubuntu, random — Tags: , — boredandblogging @ 11:58 pm

Over the last couple of months, I’ve visited quite a few big chain bookstores in Wichita, Atlanta, and Orlando.

I see a disturbing trend.

The big soft comfortable chairs are disappearing.

Thats not completely true. There are still a few around the magazine sections, but none in the rest of the stores.

Well, except within the in-house Starbucks, Seattle Coffee or whatever.

Is this is a business decision? I should have asked a clerk. Maybe they don’t want people coming in, sitting down, reading, and then leaving. Instead, people will stroll through the stores, make a quick decision to purchase since there is no way to spend any significant time with the books, and leave.

Or maybe its to steer customers to the coffeeshop, where the bookstore surely gets a kickback.

Too disturbing for me.

I admit it, I don’t understand my fascination with Lolcats.

I Can Has Cheezburger? is my browser homepage.

I might not be the only one suffering from this affliction, but its still pretty scary. But you can’t tell me stuff like this doesn’t make you crack up!

We went to JapanFest Saturday. Lots of vendors hawking their wares, a few food vendors, but we missed the good stuff and some of the lines were too long.

All the pictures can be seen here:
