2 thoughts on “What Chicago Boyz Readers Are Reading (June 2016)”

  1. I figure if people are looking but not buying it’s still interesting to see what they are looking at. The only entries that I cull from these lists are for items other than books, videos or music, and the occasional porn or anti-Semitic title that I don’t want to promote.
