Buy a Novel, Get a Head of Lettuce Free

Grocery stores are now getting into the book business. I do not like this at all. Grocery stores should stick to groceries. I understand they are trying to keep up with Sam's Club and Super Wallmart (both of which I have major issues with) but it just seems so wrong. And authors are even doing book signings there. Can you imagine going to see Margaret Atwood at Albertsons to have her reading interrupted with "Herb, clean up on isle 4!" blaring over the loudspeaker? I cringe at the thought.
