Thank you for the kind article "Best Sellers," by Karen Stabiner (May 29). We hope we can live up to the sentiments expressed. We would, however, like to set aside any misconceptions that might have been conveyed regarding the Brentwood Book Shop. When we purchased it from Lou Virgiel in 1984, it was in no sense a failing business. In fact, we were very lucky to have inherited a loyal, literate clientele.
