Confessions of the Bookstore Clerks: We Hate What You Read

Posted By on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 6:16 AM


In our never-ending quest for the unvarnished truth about literature (and all that entails) in Brooklyn, we decided to go straight to the source: the people actually selling us the books. As some of the book world's most important gatekeepers, we looked to some of Brooklyn's finest bookstore staff for an honest take on the good, the bad, and the unstoppable Fifty Shades of Grey juggernaut, and they didn't hold back. Yes, they talk about cats, and no, you shouldn't worry (too much) that they're judging your purchases.
