The 3rd and 4th floors were mostly just open space, presumably stacked with boxes.

Just stop and think about how ridiculous this was. It was BEFORE computers. That means that they had to have a written ledger somewhere with every book title on it and where the book was located in that vast building. But, how was that possible when the boxes were just randomly stacked? How could you possibly know where Dick and Jane: A Day at Grandma's House was? It would mean that every time they put boxes down somewhere, somebody had to make a record of all the titles and exactly where each box was, so that the order-filler would know where to look. And they did that for stacks of books that covered 4 floors: 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th? I don't believe it! It is inconceivable and incomprehensible that the business could have operated that way.  And again, these were schools ordering books for classes or multiple classes. So, how could a guy with a clipboard gather all those books? How could one guy in a shipping room wrap them all? 

Geez, I am getting sick of this crap. I demand to see the  shipping records. Who did they ship through? The post office? UPS? Some freight company? Who? I demand to see shipping invoices with destinations to schools. They are going to have to prove to me that book distributing was really going on. I'm telling you right now that I don't believe it. I think the whole thing was a ruse. I don't know what those people were doing in that building, but they were not shipping books. Nobody would run a company like that, just stacking and leaving nondescript boxes all over the place, which looked exactly the same even though they were supposed to be different titles, to have to hunt and peck through every time you needed to find something. Who would do that? How long would it take Lee Oswald or Buell Frazier to find a certain book in that maze and that manner? And remember what happened on the 6th floor. They were reportedly laying flooring, so they just moved stacks of books from one side of the room to the other, wily-nily. Were they keeping track of all those moves? Or, was it just going to make it that much harder for someone looking for a book?

Look: that this was a business that stored and shipped school books is not believable. It is not credible. I don't know what they were really doing, but it wasn't that.
