One of our points of pride here at SMB is our care and love of the books we sell. We always try to have first editions of new books, especially the signed ones, and we are so meticulously finicky about condition that we've driving our sales reps and publicists in New York frantic with our demands of replacement copies and new dust jackets.
We're funny like that. We're all about the books, and admit it, that's why you love us!
So imagine the various words that went through our heads when we saw these:
We are pleased to announce that despite those horrific boxes, duct tape and all, the copies of the new Gillian Flynn novel, Gone Girl (Crown, $25.00) are here, and they're signed firsts!
Best of all? They're in not-totally-awful shape? Which means we're sighing but honestly? They're in good shape, and considering everything, we're tickled!
