Pre-Order Yours Today
As you might know, Dan Brown's publisher is in a plagiarism lawsuit. The latest is here.
I haven't read Brown's book (despite owning it), but I believe him when he says Holy Blood, Holy Grail was only one of 39 books he used in researching his novel.
But the lawsuit is not what this post is about.
The Da Vinci Code will make its mass market debut at the end of this month after more than three years since its first publication in hardcover. The mass market edition comes in time for the movie release.
What I don't understand is why Chapters/Coles/Indigo is telling people to pre-order the book.
Are you telling me that bookstores might suffer a shortage of paperbacks of The Da Vinci Code, one of the best selling novels ever? That The Da Vinci Code, which will be sent on skids to most book stores, will be gone like that--like it was never there?
Come on. A pre-order isn't necessary when there will be walls lined with the Code.
