Browsing books as a contact sport

With reference to my post linking to Ram Guha's piece on Premier's, The Marauder's Map writes in to point me to this excellent piece by another fine writer, Suresh Menon, in which Menon informs us that Premier's might be shutting down. He also writes about "[t]he politics of bookshop browsing," and how it can be a "contact sport."

I'm a huge fan of contact sports. I will write about one in my next post.
