@Everyone It's terrible but it's the very best kind of terrible! I was so disappointed that the original movie was a whole different kind of terrible than the book. And I love how just about everyone in my age group has pretty much the same story about reading it--whether clandestinely or openly because their parents paid no attention to that sort of thing: we all kind of happened upon it, got totally sucked in, felt scandalized but fascinated, and then headed into adulthood with fond memories even though we know now that it's crap!
@crane your neck Oh, I am so sorry. Pets...
@pajamaralls I know! I actually wrote this on my calendar, you guys.
OK, this has nothing to do with anything (hi, everyone!) but I am so embarrassingly excited to report that, last night, my BF alerted me to the fact that there will soon be...
I can hear the loud talker in our HR department clear as day, all day. It's HR, lady--you best be keeping some of that info on the DL! But no, loud talking and the volume pumped up on the speakerphone too. I've heard people's SS #s, legal stuff, reasons for terminations and docking of pay, all of it.

I'd really love to read this but that damn ad repeatedly popping out from the right side is hindering me! The worst part is that I already have a damn Tempurpedic bed--I don't need another!
YOU GUYS! If anyone is still in here I just have to say that I was sick last week (three days out of work) and I read almost all of these while I lounged around at home coughing and neti potting all day! I loved them! And when you're sick and can't concentrate much on regular grownup books, and you have a Nook at the ready, these are perfect. Next time I am stricken ill, I am buying all the old YA books I can fit in there!
@Oliver St. John Mollusc Fellow former bookstore employee here. And yes, that game... oh, that game! I worked in a B&N just when the "superstores" were starting out and let me tell you, that kind of space and freedom and coffee and couches seemed to bring out the worst in shoppers!
(Also, if you go here, notalwaysright.com, and type "bookstore" into the search field, you will probably see tons and tons of all-too-familiar scenarios!)
True hell is the holiday season, Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime."
Yes. So much.
