We’re Number One

Amazon.com has just named Alexandria America’s most well-read city, http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/alexandria-named-most-well-read-city-by-amazon/2012/05/22/gJQApqH9kU_story.html. Thanks to you and folks like you, who appreciate good books of the sort we try to stock at Book Bank Used Books.

Oh wait, Amazon also says Alexandria has the most romance readers..They do say that Virginia is for lovers. But we gave up trying to sell romance novels in our store years ago, and we’re not even making an exception for the current craze for E.L..James’s Fifty Shades of Grey series. Maybe the good folks of Alexandria and environs are downloading that series on their Kindles, before heading over to Book Bank for a real book you can hold and touch.
