ugh, i despise the flat tv trend in bars and cafes, this is the icing on the cake. a pointless and noisy distraction. very crude, typically american.

My Inner Economist is telling me that books are only a part of the reason people go to bookstores, kinda like coffee only being a part of the Starbucks experience. My guess is they will create inobtrusive ways for people to view and chat about what’s on.

In Venezuela , in almost every public( open to the public) place there is a flat tv. Hospitals included.In the Halls of thh University there are also tvs during sport events like the world cup( no, we dont have a team, we cheer Brazil or Argentina)

I find the thought of TVs in bookstores far less disturbing than the fact that Barnes & Noble has replaced its piped-in classical music and jazz with tedious pop.
