Sexiest Book Dweeb Award

See, just when you think your done for the day, you open one last link and you get this: "What's sexier than an overflowing book bag and a knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System?" Powell's employees, of course.
"There are generally a couple of attractive employees leaning seductively on a bookcase and at least one hungry-eyed tigress crawling over the top as if she can't wait to devour you. Here at Powell's, we like to think books are sexy... and bookstore employees are even sexier."

I know that when I hired people to work in my store it was all about how sexy they could be with papercuts, how sexy they looked when the customer asks for the "blue non-fiction title that they saw at a airport of a undisclosed location" and how sexy they look when they eventually hand over a copy of The Da Vinci Code, which is not blue. You've got to be sexy to do that, period.
