Browsing books can be a very personal experience. I always valued the checkout people at Powell's Books who kept their mouth shut about my book choices, and of course, at the library, since you can checkout all by yourself, so nobody can judge you based on your choices. In this hilarious scene from the movie Norman, Is That You? Ben Chambers played by Redd Foxx tries to discreetly inquire about books on homosexuality after discovering that his son is gay. At first he tries denial, "Son, you can't be homosexual, you must be on drugs! Thank God my son is on drugs!" But after Norman storms out, Ben decides to learn everything he can about homosexuality by reading about it. Unfortunately, the salespeople at the bookstore are less than sympathetic to his plight.
Volunteers crazy about books.
