remaindered…

i’m standing in a huge box of a retail store…it used to be a shoe outlet store…today it filled…with books…two thousand square feet…wall to wall…discounted…these are what they call remainders…this is what happens to books after consumers have gorged themselves on the bestseller list…christmast gifts…summer resding…i was so happy…i was paralyzed…something i read earlier flashed through my head…tens of thousands of books are published every year…most of them end up here…hardcover and aperback…after this place…what’s next…a landfill…do i really want to add to this pile…and it’s not all crap…there has got to be another way…
