Bookworms aren’t super special cupcakes, okay?

a.k.a. Mary tries to make the internet nicer. Again.

Amazon is a global superstore, like Walmart. It’s also a hardware manufacturer, like Apple, and a utility, like Con Edison, and a video distributor, like Netflix, and a book publisher, like Random House, and a production studio, like Paramount, and a literary magazine, like The Paris Review, and a grocery deliverer, like FreshDirect, and someday it might be a package service, like U.P.S. Its founder and chief executive, Jeff Bezos, also owns a major newspaper, the Washington Post. All these streams and tributaries make Amazon something radically new in the history of American business. Sam Walton wanted merely to be the world’s biggest retailer. After Apple launched the iPod, Steve Jobs didn’t sign up pop stars for recording contracts. A.T. & T. doesn’t build transmission towers and rent them to smaller phone companies, the way Amazon Web Services provides server infrastructure for startups (not to mention the C.I.A.). Amazon’s identity and goals are never clear and always fluid, which makes the company destabilizing and intimidating.

Things all book lovers should know. 

Booklr help me make a point.

Like/Reblog if you would visit and be the loyal customer of a bookstore that specialized in, but was in no way limited to Children’s lit and YA/Teen and all it’s subgenres. With dedicated sections for the typical things like poetry, classics, romance, biographies etc. The cafe would have drinks and snacks inspired by literature in some way like White Witch Turkish Delight. On top of all that it would be spacious and wheelchair friendly. With actual little shopping carts you could take around the store.
