bookstore conversation

Overheard at Barnes and Noble:

Teenage Girl, "I am so sick of fantasy!"

Her two friends were trying to be supportive, but didn't seem to agree. We were leaving, so I didn't hear what else they said.

Food for thought: there wasn't much fantasy on the table they were looking at, but some of the covers looked like fantasy covers. Maybe she wasn't sick of fantasy so much as sick of the sameness of covers or or that fantasy is being marketed more with Harry Potter finishing up this year and the movies that are coming out that are based on fantasy novels.
