Compare & Contrast: Bookshops

I haven't read the post that goes with it, but the German trade mag Buchreport has a lovely set of photos of the top bookstore chains around the world. So you can compare the terribly stylish French Fnac with Russia's Top-Kniga, for example, which looks like even standing near it would hurt your eyes. The picture of Germany's top chain, Thalia, reminds me that I must change my profile photo.

Sad, really, that when two bookshop bosses are being photographed for their trade magazine, that the only two titles they decided to pose with were Feuchtgebiete and Ken Follett's latest. Sad, but appropriate.

And Russia: hm, reminds me a lot of England. Presumably every book costs 99 kopecks?
