I thought that MJD’s list placement was really low. I don’t know if it is a function of this being the first in a new series or reader frustration over lack of character growth. I also think its a sad state of things when reprints get top billing over new releases such as in Nora Roberts’ and Mary Balogh’s cases.

A bit unrelated: I was at Barnes & Noble last night and they were reshelving some of Nora Roberts’ books that had fallen off the bestseller list. Apparently one had fallen off last week and three this week. I also saw 4 Holly Lisle books there with her most recent book face out. I think there were five copies in all. She was at the bottom of the shelf, but so were all the other authors whose last name started with “Li”. I went in to buy a Dee Davis book. There were none there. Instead I bought little girlie a Biscuit book and myself a Zebra contemporary, Alexa Darin’s Good With His Hands.

  1. Sleeping with the Fishes was definitely blah. Typical MJD. Fluffy, but not a lot of substance.

    I also bought Good WIth His Hands. Was an impulse buy because of the price.
