Is It Hot in Here?
LA Brain Terrain is running a contest to find Los Angeles' hottest bookseller. If you've ever visited Vroman's, you know we have an incredibly good-looking and charismatic staff... and we're not afraid to do a little campaigning. Take a look at some of our bookselling babes below, then go to LA Brain Terrain and vote for your favorite!
Mike G. (left) is working on his M.A. in English. He loves to sing in the shower ("Beyond the Sea" is a favorite tune), and his favorite color is dark blue. Justin J.'s (right) many hats include Book Department Assistant Manager, student, and concept designer for a clothing company. He is a Pisces.
