Barnes & Noble? Forget what you've heard about sales struggles and investor confidence and whatnot: they're in it to win it. (Photo by Richard Kim.)
Where is the "Classic Teen Paranormal Romance" section?
"Historical Teen Paranormal Romance"
Or the "Teen Paranormal Romance" – Non-Fiction?
Give them a few years and there will just be a wall of Twilight. oh, wait.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Fang
That should probably be Pippi Bloodsucking
"Justin Bieber Paranormal Romance."
@kitten: The line between Historical Teen Paranormal Romance and Historical Teen Erotic Romance is thin indeed.
Werewolf in the Rye.
To Kill A Mockingbird, and Everyone Around the Mockingbird Whom I'm Not Currently Dating
A Separate Peace…of Human Flesh
Great Expectorations (of Blood).
Of Nonhuman Bondage
Ha ha I pointed this out to my wife recently after seeing this in a second Barnes and Noble (I know, my kid likes to go).
Part of their larger "You Don't Know Your Child At All" section.
The Great Giaoursby.
I stuck zombie, vampire and wizard in the ngram machine last night and thought the results were kind of interesting.
I've decided on the core of my press release when reporters ask me about (is that guy with a huge bald head still here?) my Supreme Court filing: http://collegestandard.net/
So…"A Confederacy of Dunces" is deemed for both?
If one must have hobbies, they should at least amuse oneself.
Not for nothing, but if people start chasing me around with books they never read or remember – I'm going to get a restraining order on them.
Your all supposed to be slumbering in the warmth of ignorance and blissful atrophy. Very hard to have fun around awake people which is why I move from movement to movement. E VA.
I was at a Border's recently.. the one above Penn Station. I remember when every Border's had a sizeable classical music section. Well, that section is gone, except for one shelf of crossover crap. But there are a LOT more Atlas Shrugged T shirts, Glenn Beck Christmas books, The Secret on tape and cat calendars than there used to be.
I was in a Borders Friday night, looking for the Patti Smith book. You know, the one that just won an award? They didn't; didn't have a copy, either.
@Ronit: in my afterlife, Brahms is hanging out with angels playing one of the Intermezzos, the strains of which are faintly audible to Ayn Rand (wearing an inflammable Atlas Shrugged t-shirt) down in the fiery lake.
She was actually a very nice person, um, in person. Most writers are once you get over how shitty a writer they truly are. I think we should go back to the days when history was handed down around campfires in the spoken word.
And you could burn your ex-gf for being a witch when she wouldn't put out. Amirite Richard Blakeley?
I've heard some publishers are refusing to deal with Borders because their payments are so behind. So this is probably part of the painful death spiral.
They know their audience. They don't have a "Teen Normal Romance" section.
