This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Are you the only employee in a small, dusty shop, or are you one of many in a huge chain store? Do you find it to be a dangerous occupation, based on the number of books you bring home regularly? Share a great find or gripe.

Do be sensible, lest The Person In Charge (or a crazy customer) recognize you as Dear Employee X and sack you (or come find you at work!)
