    I went into the B.Dalton at the train station Tuesday looking for something to read on the trip home. The only book that was vaguely interesting was a remaindered copy of Cody Diablo’s memoir about stripperdome; she’s getting a lot of press about Juno. But no, not even that made the cut.

    Seems like I’m leaving the bookstore without making a purchase a lot lately. Not even discounts or coupons are enough to make me want to buy what’s out on the shelves.
