I’ve attached a couple of pictures of Billy’s book on our main display, front and center. Do tell people who are looking to get copies that their local, independent bookstore should have no problem getting it for them. Baker & Taylor and Ingram, the two big distributors to independents like us have plenty in stock. We get our special orders in two days and don’t charge shipping, unlike some large, unpleasant online places that start with an ‘A’.
It took me only two days to tear through the book. It was even better than I’d hoped, based on the wonderful op-ed piece he’d done for the Times. I do a lot of what’s called ‘hand selling’ in our business. I have a herd of loyal customers that take my word for what’s good, and trust that I know their taste and I’ve been so pleased to put this book into their hands.
