There is something about bookstores that inspires grand sweeping sentiment. My eyes roll every time I see it. There's a site called "Shelf Awareness" that has a header every day with one of these great mystical bookstore statements.
I own a bookstore because I like books. I also want to earn a living, have a nice place to hang out, and meet interesting people.
I'm not out to change the world. I'm not out to save your soul. I'm not floating to heaven from the worthiness of my enterprise.
I sell books.
