Not that I’m obsessed, or anything (current Amazon rank: 1106), but here are the results from my incomplete survey of local book stores regarding How to Teach Physics to Your Dog:
- Barnes & Noble: “Out of Stock” in all local stores. Has never been in stock, really.
- Borders in Crossgates Mall: “Likely in store” according to the book finder computer, but if they actually put any out, either they sold them, or they’re well hidden.
- The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza: Two copies prominently displayed in the top row of the “new arrivals” case, between David Byrne’s book about bicycling and John Perkins’s book about economic catastrophe. Each of those had six copies, so if the stacks started the same size, they sold a few of mine. There was another in the science section, face out.
The moral: Hooray for local independent bookstores! They also provided me with the last thing I was looking for in the Christmas present category, so double hooray for the Book House.
I promise I’ll blog about something else, soon, but you have to humor me for today, at least…
