Count the Products!



(Pictured: Alice Gregory, our designated “Ultimate Commercialized Writer.”)

Have art and commerce merged completely? Is Ultimate Commercialized Writer Alice Gregory, a New York staple, the face of the future writer?

DON’T FORGET! Count the products at the first link. Tell us what you believe is the correct number, asap. Don’t be wrong! Thanks.
