I just stopped a local Walmart, not the one I usually go to (we have three in the area although I live in the middle of nowhere...I keep waiting to wake up and have one in my backyard :)) But I noticed that they had completely redone their book section. It use to be cramped and huddled next to school supplies...now they've made it three short rows in the middle of the store with most of the new titles prominently displayed. I was pleasantly shocked and it made me wonder (yes, I do use my brain off and on!). Walmart never, ever does anything that isn't for profit so I had to assume that even in these tough times people are buying books. What's the word on the street??? Do you know people who are reading more instead of doing activities that are more expensive?
My random thought of the day,
