I had an interview with Barnes & Noble today, and, while it went well enough that they've decided to give me a second interview, it left me depressed.
The words "It's not about books anymore, it's about selling" were used. More than once. And not by me, believe me.
Why can't it be about books? I love books. I do not love selling.
I understand that places have to stay in business, and that's getting harder and harder with places like Amazon giving them such steep competition, but... I dunno. I just hate it. I wish I didn't have to work retail.
I need to write that friggin' book so that I don't have to do this shit anymore.
I was going to say more, but I'm feeling kind of down about the whole thing right now. Maybe I'll add on later.
