Guilty Pleasures

twinkieTwinkies are back! Twinkies are back! Twinkies are back! Although allegedly smaller in size, many cannot wait for another bite of  spongy goodness. They will rationalize their purchase as indulging in a taste of childhood (or adding to their doomsday stockpile.) Don’t apologize for your eating tastes, people! As long as nobody gets hurt, we all have a right to our guilty pleasures. So, liberate your patrons from the urge to carry out their books in a plain, brown wrapper. Put your fun, frivolous, fabulous, books face out and LET THEM EAT CAKE!
