Okay, so I was checking out Amazon's listing of BLUE yesterday and noticed they had 42 copies new and used - one for as low as 5.44. I was curious about the description of that volume at that price and discovered not one, but two withdrawn library copies were being sold!
Withdrawn library books? For Pete's sake - the book has only been out a year! Now I can imagine that library shelf-space is limited but somehow I thought books would be given more chance than that to find a following!
I just keep thinking about all those school kids that really love BLUE and wonder if the librarians who withdrew those two copies had read or promoted it in any way. Maybe I'm kidding myself but I choose to believe that if they'd read the first page they would have been pulled into the story and Amazon would have two fewer copies of BLUE available.
Oh well, maybe it doesn't matter. Because truthfully BLUE at 5.44 is such a great deal - surely it will be snatched up and airmailed off to some other part of the country - where someone WILL read it and recommend it to his or her friends!
