나의 한마디: (아직은) 빛 좋은 개살구
그분의 한마디: 앤님(나를 지칭) 컬렉션이 더 나아요
그날의 한마디: 와, 진짜 싸다!
총평: 헌책방과 새책방, 마트 서점을 적당히 얼버무린 책가게. 역시 내 취향은 아니야.

다음날 출근에 벌써부터 우울해지는 일요일 점심, 그분과 한가로운 커피집에 앉아 커피를 마시다 알라딘서재를 휙 둘러본다. 알라딘이 오프라인 중고서점을 열었단다. "여기나 가볼까요?" 해서 찾아가게 된 알라딘 중고서점.

참고로 쥔장은 헌책을 좋아하지 않는다. 자원 재활용이나 여러 가지를 생각해 보면 헌책에도 관심을 가져야 마땅할 것이나, 인간과 깊숙한 관계 맺기를 꺼려하는 쥔장은 아직 남의 역사(밑줄 그은 자리, 낙서, 접힌 자리)를 대면할 용기가 없다. 헌옷, 헌 신발은 잘도 받아 입으면서 헌책을 저어하는 건 '책에는 뭔가 특별한 것이 있다'고 여기기 때문일까.

종로2가 그곳은, 달빛시위를 할 때 지나가다 보면 여자들이 떼로 가니 영업을 하고는 싶고, 그렇다고 올 것 같지는 않고(부를 만한 외모와 차림도 아니고), 어쨌든 영업에 방해는 된다는 묘한 표정으로 호객행위를 하던 오빠들이 일했던 자리다. 업종이 바뀐 후에야 처음 들어가 보는 옛 나이트클럽.

공간은 중고서점치고는 큰 것 같았고, 새책 서점이라 치면 작은 것 같고, 또 그렇다고 동네서점이랑 비교하면 큰 편이고 그렇다. 중고책방이면서 새책방 분위기를 내려고 많이 노력한 게 눈에 띈다. 아마도 '칙칙한' 기존의 중고서점 분위기에서 벗어나 '보다 깔끔하고 세련된' 분위기에서 새책 골라잡듯 책을 고를 수 있도록 하자, 가 가장 큰 기획의도였던 듯하다.

책장은 아직 많이 차지 않았고, 종류가 많다는 느낌도 들지 않았다(다른 헌책방도 자기계발서 코너가 그렇게 큰 걸까?). 다만, 겉보기엔 모두 깨끗한 책들이 눈길을 끈다. 새 책도 제법 되었고. 한정된 출판사의 한정된 책들이라는 게 아쉬웠지만. 재고판매용이니 그럴 수밖에 없을 테고, 몇 권 안 되는 책은 금세 누가 가져가 버릴 테니 내 눈엔 더 그렇게 보였던 거겠지. 책정리도 아직 덜 되어 같은 책을 다른 책장 두세 군데서 발견하기도 하고, 서점이 아니라 마트 같은 분위기(쭈쭈바 빨면서-음식물은 입구에 두고 오라고 쓰여 있던데 아이들은 예외인가?- 아빠 엄마 찾고 떠드는 아이들, 그 아이들을 제지하기는커녕 장단 맞춰주는 보호자들, 아이들만큼 떠드는 젊은 언니 오빠야들, 엄청 바쁘게 여기 저기 돌아다니는 아르바이트생들...) 때문에 차분히 책 구경하는 재미는 어느 정도 자리가 잡힌 후에나 기대해야 할 듯(근데 그런 날이 올까 싶기는 하다). 한데 그 와중에 들어버린 어떤 언니의 감탄. "와, 진짜 싸다~" 책은 '가격비교'를 해가며 '쇼핑'하는 '상품'이 되었구나 하는 씁쓸함이 슬쩍. 입구에 놓인 "책 천 원부터" 엑스배너를 보고 나면 씁쓸함은 약간의 서글픔으로 번진다.

다만 일일이 얼마냐고 물을 필요 없이 책등에 스티커나 바코드를 붙여 가격을 안내하는 시스템은 편리할 것 같다. 혹시 아는 사람이라도 볼까 싶어 간혹 두리번거리기도 했는데 우연찮게 주말이라 고객입장으로 놀러온 알라딘 직원(알라딘 들어가기 전부터 알던 사이임)만 마주쳤다, 하하.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.
    Kudos
