As a reader/writer of mostly nonfiction interests AND an English student, I feel right at home within this literary inner-circle of trust. It's cool to have the knowledge of and access to endless amounts of books--fiction included, which I plan to get more into to give my brain a break. The discounts, the Marquette game (in the suite), author events, etc. are okay too, I guess...
The customers can be idiosycratic--very different than in other retail stores. Book-lovers are a special breed of people.
Haha, I like that this question purposefully poses something so impossible to do. Ah, The Catcher In the Rye.

5. For which writer—living or dead—would you take a bullet?
Well, I have a weird tendency to like my authors stiff-and-rotten. Perhaps, I would take a bullet for someone of the Malcolm Gladwell persuasion in hopes of my posthumous writings building off of such a magnanimous act.
Franz Kafka's character in Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa. He, for the most part, accepts change and appearance knowing that we aren't really in control of anything except for our reactive or proactive decisions.
Easy, Tori Amos, in a heartbeat.
Whiskey and Sprite, cheers!
Wait, so life isn't a dream?!
