  • Recently, when the Choice Books (CB) service rep arrived to service the CB display at Fort Bragg, the display was empty. This typically isn’t a good thing, so the rep asked management about it, and they said that a woman came into the store and bought every book off the display. She said she was dying and wanted to give the books away.
