“Is there anyway I can help you?”shelfpeople

Yes…in this section, there doesn’t seem to be any Bibles.”

“Yes, the Christian Fiction section is more popular so it takes up more space. The Bibles are around the corner in a separate section.”

“How to you gauge popularity, by the volume of books?”

“No, our computer tallies our sales. It seems Christian Fiction is popular.”

“What about Atheist Fiction…” I joked,  “Where can I find that?”

“Not as popular, but it’s the next row over.”

“I was just kidding. There is such a thing!?”

“Something they don’t like to admit to, but then again alot of the Christians don’t like to admitting that they  drawn to Christian Fiction.  Credibility isn’t in fashion these days.”

“What kind of books are in the Atheist Fiction section?”

“Sorry, I don’t have alot of time, so you’ll have to look for yourself. Largely stories about cave people, their families, and Big Bang taken a step further. Pterodactyls, Monkey’s Gone Wild, Jay London.”

“You’re kidding!”

“No. That’s fiction for you. Of course you could go to our more whimsical section, it’s well, not quite as clear as the Christian or Atheist Fiction sections.”

“That being?”

“The Agnostic Fiction section. But please don’t ask me about that section. It makes my head spin.”

  1. You must be talking about Powell’s. No other bookstore is big enough to have an agnostic fiction section.

  2. I happen to be going to Powell’s this Saturday. You never know what lurks in the catacombs of a bookstore. Perhaps even a Jersey Devil?
