Tuesdays are the best day to shop at bookstores.
Tuesdays may also be the best day to work at a bookstore.
That’s because most books with strict on-sale dates get released on Tuesdays. So they bring a fresh flurry of excitement, a big change-up in displays, and those happy “The book you preordered is available today” phone calls and emails.
