The dame still matters

Lady, you'll need a larger tote bag for that.

Agatha Christie sets another record! She's now the author of the book with the largest spine ever -- over a foot long.

And in Iran, they arrest a woman whom they believe to be their first female serial killer. The woman confessed that she somehow patterned her killings from Christie's whodunits.

And also...

I went to three bookstores today and noticed that they have new stocks but with much higher prices. Could this be the result of the tax imposed on imported books?


line of flight said...

either directly (i heard warehousing while the books wait customs inspection costs the same as the value of the books being imported) or indirectly (book stores have decided to make a little interim profit with their remaining stock preemptively raising rates).
