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......
