On my latest trip to the local bookstore, after a quick stop by the magazine section to gape at Keira Knightley’s awful hair on the September cover of Vogue, I made my way over to the relatively (and unfairly) small YA section.
I had a pretty good idea of what I was going to get - I usually do - but my plans seemed to be put on pause when a couple of YA-haters were snickering and voicing their opinions all too loudly. (Particularly in regards to the covers of L.J. Smith's The Vampire Diaries and the content of Erin Haft's Pool Boys.)
Maybe I'm just aging myself here, but I think that acting this way in an all-too-public bookstore is horrible. It made me not want to shop around them and it can't have been any good for business.
Have you had similar experiences?
