Your brother is lucky enough to find a bookstore with intelligent employees? All of my bookstores are filled with teenagers who if asked where I could find an autobiography on Jackie O., they'd say, "she's that Hollywood romance writer, right?"

This has not been my experience at all. For the most part I have found, people get a job at a book store because they want a discount on the books that they buy. At the Barnse and Noble down the street I usually get a comentary on the books I buy.

"I wasn't a fan of this book."
"I really dig this book, good eye, not many people know about this author"

And of course the obligatory look of distain I get when I purchase the new Steven King book.
