    A piece of Reading Frenzy History: In 1998 we briefly sold the first and as far as I know only, bootlegged book anyone has ever consigned at the shop ~ Twenty-Two Stories by J.D. Salinger. The book was written up in the local papers, at which time my attorney ordered me to stop selling them. Not long after it was written up in the New Yorker "Murmurs" section ~ the piece was written by a local writer who I knew and I had acted as a liaison for with the publisher. He returned the favor by suggesting that if I wasn't the publisher that I was at least "in bed with" them. Nice. Anyhow, I bought a couple copies (which are in mint condition) at the time and am now offering them as a reward along with a copy of of the New Yorker blurb.
