Because microblogging is extremely addictive. The following tweets were posted to my public Twitter account in the past twenty four hours (or the last time LoudTwitter updated, whichever is sooner):
  • 02:14 Wowie. Watch Jon Stewart get honestly pissed off at CNN: tinyurl.com/5rvohz
  • 13:38 *groans* Major headache. Tried taking naproxin, pseudoephedrine, even caffeine. Nothing's working.
  • 15:52 Taking higher than the recommended dose of pseudoephedrine did the trick. Now I'm a bit jittery but pain free. (Yep, must be sinuses.)
  • 20:50 "Manga" and "Graphic Novels" are now on opposite sides of the Wachung Borders store. Well, well, well...doesn't that speak VOLUMES?
  • 20:52 Oh, and need I mention that they put "Manga" by the young adult fiction, while "Graphic Novels" stays by SF/fantasy? Unspoken gender divide.
  • 20:52 Not to mention generation gap. :-P

Interesting. At the Seattle Borders, both the manga and graphic novels are in the same place (right next to the art books) and frequently get mixed up. The SF novels are a couple of aisles over and the whole YA/children's section isn't even on the same FLOOR.

Some of the variation is undoubtedly due to spatial constraints...but I noticed that in another local Borders (much smaller than Wachung, which is hangar-like), manga moved so that it is literally across a narrow, claustrophobic aisle from YA, while graphic novels are still sequenced right after manga, but facing outward, toward nothing in particular.

Manga and GNs are neighbors in our Borders, both near the SF area and about as far from YA land as they can get.
