Encounters of the Third Kind

Last week, I posted about seeing my book on the shelves and asked readers to report any sightings.

Ed Champion sent three photos from Bay Area bookstores. Here’s HODP at City Lights, where it keeps company to Neil LaBute’s collection of stories, Seconds of Pleasure:


At Booksmith, it sits next to Adam Langer’s The Washington Story:


And at Alexander Book Co, it looks like it’s shelved in the stacks, next to Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake:


Here, in the Pacific Northwest, Valerie T. spotted Hope at the University Bookstore in Seattle. (Hi, Nick!)

We’ve also had two sightings in Milwaukee, both at Schwartz Bookstores, which also made it a Schwartz 100 pick. Readers Michael N. and Tom N. wrote in with the news. Milwaukee rocks.

In Chicago, HODP caught the eye of Laura C. at Women and Children First. Meanwhile, Tod Goldberg picked up his copy at Borders in Chicago, where he’d made a stop on his tour to promote his own collection, Simplify.

And below is a camera phone photo sent in by Rima M., who saw HODP at Brookline Booksmith in Boston:
