We (Powell's) will be getting the Harry Crews book sometime in September. Look for it then!

I can't help wondering if Google's project would cause even more books to be printed in editions of only a few thousand copies — and if the print runs would shrink even further. And who benefits from that?

Too bad Nick Hornby doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. Anyone who tried to read his last book with the suicides wanted to kill themselves. He should pay more attention to great writing and read less trash like "Da Vinci's Code."
