Chapters/Indigo employees have good taste

24 Sep

As gung-ho as I am about the encroachment of e-books, one thing I’m not looking forward to is the inevitable decline of bookstores. Just as CDs seem to be the last thing HMV sells these days, I imagine it’ll be a similar situation with books in the not-too-distant future, given that the sales trajectory of e-books is growing much faster than digital music did.

I say this because I love bookstores. I love going to them and walking around aimlessly, open to whatever will catch my attention. I do this at least once a week at the huge Chapters store near the CBC building.

I was there yesterday and, what do you know, there’s Sex, Bombs and Burgers under the staff picks section:

That’s two Chapters/Indigo stores to pick my book in a week. If you haven’t bought it yet, do you need any more enticement? Come on – two Chapters employees can’t be wrong!

But seriously – thanks to Kern at this particular store for picking SB&B. There are of course digital equivalents to this sort of “staff pick,” but in this particular area you’ll have to forgive me if I’m somewhat opposed to future trends.
