"Amazon sells books, but they are not a bookstore. There's a big difference. A bookstore is an experience. You peruse the shelves; you have a coffee; you talk to the staff and patrons; you might even plot a socialist revolution. Amazon doesn't provide that experience. And Chapters sells more candles and cushions and beer kits than books now. What a strange place." Read more about Matt here - http://www.mun.ca/hss/engagement/alumni/alumni_of_month.php.
