Defeating the purpose?

The Lee University bookstore is now enticing shoppers with a brand new flat screen television prominently positioned at the foot of the store, just in front of the doors.

The display, which is visible from the lobby, runs advertisements on a continuous stream to promote shopping at the store, a store employee said.

This is the second flat screen television mounted in the store. The first was installed to display the news and hangs from the ceiling by the arched window.

The new display provides just what we need... Commercials in a bookstore.

Until this point, bookstores were the last untouched place on earth.

But then again, why read books when we can just watch the movie... on a flat screen?
