Barnes & Noble
It is 7:54 pm on a Saturday. Cecelia is at the Chuck Palahniuk reading in Asheville. I am sitting in the mall bookstore with my laptop. This strikes me as a rather boring activity. People, sitting, sipping coffee, in Starbucks seating area with their laptops or books. Pretty much silent, with music in the background, and an occasional word or two spoken, or a blender going off. Are we in the library or something?
