Tyson Cornell, Book Soup’s general manager, declined to comment on the impending sale. But like most of his customers, he worried that a new owner would change the atmosphere and guiding principles of the store.
The store is special, Cornell said Sunday, because of its unique selection of books and its knowledgeable staff, composed mostly of aspiring authors and screenwriters.
“I’m very concerned that things will change,” he added.
Shocker, people who work at a book store don’t want things to change.
We like Vromans. We’re happy Book Soup isn’t been turned into an organic tattoo parlor or something. A locally grown, whole grain, doggy day care or teeth whitening acting school…oh it could be MUCH worse.
