Everything I need to know I learned from carrying cartons of books up and down stairs at the store

For example:

* Contrary to what you’ve been hearing all these years, cockroaches will not be the only things left after a worldwide nuclear war. There will also be Annapurna stacks of books by Janet Evanovich, John Grisham, James Patterson, and Dean Koontz. In fact, they will outlast even the cockroaches. This is not an aspersion on their personal and/or literary qualities. I chatted with Janet Evanovich back when she was launching the Stephanie Plum series, and a nicer person you couldn’t have asked to meet. I liked the Grisham books I’ve read, and I thought it was pretty cool of him to sink all that money into resuscitating the Oxford American. But their books pour into this used bookstore and don’t leave.

* A separate Rapture will be needed to remove all the copies of the Left Behind series that are glutting garage sales and used bookstores.
