Several months ago, the first weeks of May a new book arrived with many others to be put on display at Laurelwood Booksellers. The book, a first novel for a new author was placed on the shelves with all the other new arrivals. But unlike the other new arrivals there was only one copy of this new book. Why? It wasn't expected to sell very well, new author, first book nothing really special about it.
They were right, the book sat on the shelves for months untouched. No one even noticed it.
That all changed this weekend.
The book sold Sunday, the only copy they had. Soon after that customers started showing up, searching for the book but came up empty handed, calling "Do you have it?" only to hear no, it will be months before we get it back in.
