BMV – Annex

I was in BMV today, browsing. I noticed that the books we read are really different from those in SF. Different coast, different country.

Those bookstores Thea took me to in the Mission are really cool. The selections are amazing. In comparison, even BMV and Eliot’s and Seekers seems asisnine.

I asked the booksellers about it and they tell me that it is just the reality of the Canadian book market. In the fiction section, there were only line after line of Peguin Classics and NYT bestsellers. In SF they seem to be able to sell novels and poems that can’t have appeal to more than a few thousand people in the world.

This about Toronto really sucks.
