Book Mark: 25 Things I Learned From Opening a Bookstore

Interested in opening a bookstore?  jlslarthe over at Salon pulled together the 25 things she learned while opening her bookstore. While I have never contemplated opening a bookstore, the following 'things' definitely caught my attention as a overly frequent visitor of said stores:

11.  Under no circumstances should you put the sex manuals in the free baskets.  Parents will show up.

18.  People use whatever is close at hand for bookmarks--toothpicks, photographs, kleenex, and the very ocassional fifty dollar bill, which will keep you leafing through books way beyond the point where it's pr0ductive. 

23.  Everyone has a little Nancy Drew in them.  Stock up on the mysteries.
