Bookselling bits

On a listing on ABE for Jane Smiley's Horse Heaven:

"Don't forget that buying this book means my Jack Russells get their supper!"

And I have wondered over the years exactly how the industrial booksellers work.  There is one similarity between us that might not occur to you straightaway:  central heating obviously isn't an issue in the warehouse, and it doesn't tend to be much here either so I can sympathise with the workers in their coats.
