Recently I mentioned some tentative steps I’d made inside bookstores to see who had stocked my book, and where they had placed it on their shelves. I have two updates to that post, one ridiculous and the other sublime.
The ridiculous: the bookstore that had carefully displayed my book in the home renovation / interior decoration section. That’s a category error if ever I heard of one. I pity any renovator who bought a copy in the hope of a blow-by-blow description of how to transform her home.
The sublime: Seeing an artful arrangement of my book in the window of Better Read Than Dead, Newtown. I was so excited, I went in to thank them, and ended up signing a few copies.
