120,000 years of human labor?

October 23rd, 2007

I love bookstores. (I actually wanted to own an independent bookstore…before Barnes & Noble came along and destroyed that dream.)

Whenever I’m in a bookstore, generic viagra for sale I can’t help but think of the colossal amount of human time represented on its shelves.

For illustration’s sake, viagra buy viagra let’s say the average book takes two years to write and the average Barnes & Noble has around 60, buy viagra 0000 unique titles in stock–that’s 120,000 human years of thinking, living, loving, and writing.

Just another reason why bookstores are the most amazing places most of us never think twice about.

    Mrs. capper has decreed that I am not allowed near a bookstore without adult supervision. I can literally spend hours (and hundreds of dollars) in a bookstore.

    If I could only find a job that would pay me to read and blog, I’d be a made man.
