If you can get it on during an author reading, you get bonus points. And DOUBLE the bonus points if you can do it with no one noticing or throwing you out or calling the police or anything. And, of course, no paper cuts.

Re: Having sex in the Powell's Pearl Room. It's not all that difficult to do if you don't mind the paper-cuts.

article on 17th Street/Alloy drops this little bomb:
The relationships between Alloy and the publishers are so intertwined that the same editor, Claudia Gabel, is thanked on the acknowledgments pages of both Ms. McCafferty's books and Ms. Viswanathan's "How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life." Ms. Gabel had been an editorial assistant at Crown Publishing Group, then moved to Alloy, where she helped develop the idea for Ms. Viswanathan's book. She has recently become an editor at Knopf Delacorte Dell Young Readers Group, a sister imprint to Crown.
So, what's the connecting link between the two books -- and who's more responsible for the plagiarism? Just wonderin'.
