How great is it that the book world can get stirred up by the books that President Obama has in his shopping bag? The New York Times reports that booksellers across the country were all atwitter after a staff member at a Martha's Vinyard bookstore tucked an ARC of Jonathan Franzen's long-awaited new book Freedom into his shopping bag.
Publisher FSG didn't mind a bit (but also declined to move the on-sale date up).
I don't think that incident made Fox News, though.
