So that's where they all went

During the signing following last night's reading at Third Place Books, I noticed a number of people had copies of Bad Monkeys with gold "LOCAL AUTHOR" stickers on them. Since I'd seen Third Place Books' stock and knew they didn't use stickers like that, I asked what was up, and learned that these copies were from Costco, which reportedly has a stack of Bad Monkeys next to the Harry Potter books. It wasn't the discount that had led these people to buy from Costco, though -- it was the fact that Costco's copies were first editions. Unfortunately, because Costco's not a rare bookstore, they don't understand about condition, and I have a feeling those stickers are going to be the kind you can't remove without a chisel.

Heh, I was a little worried when I got the books shipped from Queen Anne's with a sticker on them.

Then I remembered that I got it signed to go with my other signed books; I'm never going to sell my books, and books are for reading (see also: my beat-up comic book collection).

The sticker came right off without leaving any residue or mark, so kudos to that sticker company and Queen Anne's.
