My Local Bookstore is the Coolest


Note the nifty display. That’s hometown pride for you. And look! Stephen King is my understudy!

Congrats. Redshirts doesn’t look like my cup of tea. However, I may have to read Agent to the Stars.

Also, if they’re gonna make a display shouldn’t they have more than 4 copies? Call your suppliers!

Pox Vay, I’ve read and enjoyed most of Scalzi’s work, and Agent To The Stars remains my favorite to re-read. Although I am now gazing at the prize which arrived in today’s mail: my signed hardback The Mallet of Loving Correction 2008-2012, so it’s possible ATTS may not keep that title. (Since I follow this blog, does my first read of TMOLC count as a re-read?)

Pox Vay:

I’m sure they have more than the copies on display in the window. That’s the whole point of window displays, to draw you in, and then you’ll find *other* books you want to take home, as well.

(Though window displays in second-hand bookstores seem to operate by different rules…)
