Bookstore Clerk
A bookstore is a rabbit hole in The Sims 3 where Sims can buy and sell books and other forms of literature. These include cooking recipes, fishing books, music sheets, skill books, alchemy recipes[TS3:SN], and comic books[TS3:UL]. Sims can get a part-time job in the bookstore as a bookstore clerk. Snob Sims are more likely to visit the lot that contains the building.

Bookstore rabbit holes generate the following red map tag in-game:
