Bookseller news

Barnes and Noble is currently featuring a video interview with Terry Pratchett. (I'm finding that their new site is about 20% slower and fifty times more irritating than their old one. Is any one else having this reaction?)

Amazon has the first volume of the Wallflower anime available for pre-order. They're giving a 25% discount, too... which still doesn't make it worthwhile, in my opinion. This was a really low-quality anime.

On the East Coast, the Strand Bookstore will be hosting an event on November 19th with the exquisitely beautiful Padma Lakshmi, host of Bravo's Top Chef and author of Tangy, Tart, Hot and Sweet: A World of Recipes for Every Day. If anybody goes to this, can you find out how it is that she works around food every day and still remains a size -2? And then get back to me? Thanks!

On the West Coast, Powell's is offering a hefty 30% discount off of Brock Clarke's The Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England, which we had earlier singled out for having truly excellent cover art.
