I went to check out the new bookstore in Laurelwood, novel. It replaced Booksellers when it closed its doors. They have revamped and I was curious whether conservative books would be readily visible or half hidden in the back as they are in many stores.
Right as you come in the door is a display of nonfiction books. First at the table is Jeff Flake’s “Conscience of a Conservative.” Hard to believe anyone would buy that book. He should be glad it has been mentioned on TV at all since his audience must be the moderates who really don’t care about much anyway. They aren’t conservatives, so why would they buy the book? Why would conservatives? Flake has shown himself to be as big a RINO as his co Arizona senator John McCain – maybe even bigger.
That was a bit off putting as was Al Gore’s new book, “Truth to Power,” displayed at the other end of the table. It was full of photos and graphs with entries by “authorities” about climate change, electricity, etc. Didn’t look like he even wrote the book. It looked like something that his believers – not too deep thinking millenial social justice warriors – could easily grasp, if they had the money to buy it.
Then there was also a book by Dick Morris, “Rogue Spooks, The Intelligence War on Donald Trump.” Not that I think he knows what he’s talking about, but at least he’s on our side. Might want to change the name of that one if he wants to be politically correct.
A nearby shelf had another slew of political/non fiction books. They had Milo Yiannopolous’s “Dangerous.” There was Mark Levin’s “Rediscovering Americanism;” Michael Savage’s “Trump War;” Newt Gingrich’s “Understanding Trump;” Dinesh D’souza’s “The Big Lie.” All good.
On the other side they had Al Franken’s “Giant of the Senate” by Al Franken, of course. Don’t think I’d find that humorous. Elizabeth Warren’s “This Fight Is Our Fight” was on a shelf as was John Kasich’s “Two Paths” which I won’t be going down.
All in all, it was a fair representation and a fair display.
Good for novel. It’s about time there was fairness at the bookstore. Let’s hope it stays that way.
