A Lucky Place...

I realized recently that I discovered a magical, lucky place.

Here's how it works:

I go to a specific Barnes & Noble and buy a book.

Then I go to the Chipotle across the parking lot and read the first couple chapters. The Chipotle part is important-- I can't just buy the book and take it home for it to work-- I MUST go to Chipotle after I purchase it.

Then I go home.

Later, this book ends up on THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST. Every. Single. TIme.

It works like a charm! In 2007 I went to this store and bought THIRTEEN REASONS WHY the day it released. Eventually it hit the NYT bestseller list. In 2008, I bought the paperback for I'D TELL YOU I LOVE YOU BUT THEN I'D HAVE TO KILL YOU. Bestseller list.

A few weeks ago, I bought EVERMORE by Alyson Noel. You guessed it: bestseller list.


I'll give you ONE GUESS where I'm heading on PRADA & PREJUDICE's release date......

You obviously have good taste in reading.

But uh, maybe I'll send you a copy of my book one of these days in the future just in case :-)

Maybe if we all do it on PRADA's release date, it will get to the NYT bestseller list even faster. XP

Do you eat while you read it? 'Cause I'd probably spill something on the pages... :>)

Oh, and we don't have Chipotle here, but I will take P&P to my favorite little Tex Mex restaurant downtown.
