Reading on the Floor, Weller Book Works
<p>I’m very influenced by a whole bunch of dead people, and people who spoke languages I don’t share, by the magic of the book. This is the only thing that has ideas trapped in it very literally. It’s a big deal in my mind—more than just a job, more than just retail. I don’t like being called a retailer, and I don’t like being called a businessman. I prefer bookseller! In my mind, that’s saying you’re a purveyor of ideas and dreams and thinking.
