So you work at a bookstore right? I was wondering what people that work there think about the people that go in there and just read. I have to admit I'm one of those people because I'm a broke ass college student and just want to take a break from my regular textbooks but if it makes anyone angry, I'll stop. I just don't want to annoy anyone. Also, I love your blog.
No, we don’t usually mind.
A bookstore (especially a large one like the one I work at) is by nature a loitering culture.
The only time it becomes a problem is when people aren’t respectful and damage the books they’re reading for free. We can’t resell those books and we lose money.
Also, we ask that people clean up after themselves. It kind of chaps our asses when we have to clean up someone’s pile of books or empty snack wrappers anyway, but it’s especially irksome when that person hasn’t spent any money in our store.
Otherwise, feel free to hang out and enjoy our wares.
