Yesterday I bought a book at Book Soup in LA called the Demonologist by Andrew Pyper. I bought it because I’d read a good review of it in the New York Times Book Review last Sunday. To my confusion, the review was repeated today. They never run a review two weeks in a row, though, so I looked back to last week’s Book Review, and found that the review was not there.
I would never have bought a $25.00 book by an unknown writer without reading a strong review first. While I was reading the review today, I was also remembering it.
In some nearby universe, the Times must be a week ahead. Please, Lord, let me read the stock market columns and the sports scores!
