I always love to go to the bookstore the very first day a friend's book comes out. It's much more fun than waiting for Amazon, and it feels like one of those fun stealthy things to do. Mostly I never tell em I do it, cause really, what would you say? "Hey, I get a thrill out of being a flash mob of one"? That's a little off plumb even for me.
This coming Tuesday though, I'm going to be tracking down my buddy Jeff Cohen's new book It Happened One Knife.
If you want to join me, I'll probably be starting at Partners & Crime and working my way around Manhattan if I don't find it there! Lunch is on me; let me know if you're coming!
