Book reading is alive and well at Fairfield and our bookstore staff couldn’t be happier. Note that Kindles haven’t become obsolete, but we’re noticing that more and more of our customers are looking for an actual book they can hold in their hands. This is definitely a summer of reader demand.
As a floor person at least three times a week at the Fairfield University Bookstore, I have a front row seat to what our customers are specifically looking for. I usually have a stream of readers requesting various books from our computer search desk and I’m happy to direct them to the many sections with books of all kinds.
