The Book People vs The Movie People

Gary Deane noticed The Book-Person’s Vision.

“A quick word of explanation and qualification: by “movie people,” I don’t mean everyone who likes movies. I mean people who wind up in the field, whether as techies, execs, publicists, journalists, directors, designers, etc. Same for “book people”; for the sake of this discussion, I don’t mean book fans. I mean people who spend a hunk of their professional lives in the books world — as agents, retailers, critics, editors, writers, designers, etc.
