Well, the third is different. Pam's Books is right off the highway but I still only go there once every couple months. She has a lot of books but the place is unorganized, cramped, unorganized, expensive, and unorganized. Even if you have a specific book in mind, you can't get in and out in less than ten minutes.
Anyway, I was in a good mood on the way home yesterday and decided to give old Pam a chance. I'd like to tell you that I unearthed some rare gem or that Pam and I had an interesting conversation about eReaders. Nope. I got out of my car to find that Pam was closed for lunch. At 3:45, the time many people are heading home from work and most likely to stop at a used bookstore. There was a woman tapping her feet by the door but I didn't join her. You'd think in these uncertain economic times, especially when more and more people are turning to eReaders, Pam would be wanting to make any sale she could.
I have some theories about how Pam stays in business:
- She's a spinster and still lives with her parents, therefore she only needs to make enough to cover rent on the shop
- She has a sugar daddy and it doesn't matter if she stays in business
- She's a successful romance novel writer and runs the shop for fun.
In other news, don't give a dog leftover curry. It makes them have to go outside to use the bathroom several times throughout the night.
