You do realize that everyone is spending all their book-buying budget this week on Breaking Dawn and Acheron, right? The more serious fiction readers are plunking down their dollars for The Lace Reader. The politically minded went for the two new books on Obama.
The rest of the publishing world is just going to limp along this week, begging readers to spend any extra pennies on our books. Of course, e-publishers and online bookstores do have a bit of an advantage. If readers have to buy gas to get to an actual bookstore, they sure aren't going to have any money left for books.
