In our shop we sold nothing on credit, but we would put books aside, or order them if necessary, for people who arranged to fetch them away later. Yet in a sense it is the miners who are driving your car forward.
Yet it is the absolutely necessary counterpart of our world above. If you ask them why, they sometimes explain that it is too much fag to get used to a new set of characters with every story; they like to 'get into' a novel which demands no further thought after the first chapter.
