A Little Bad News for Kekua and Others... 

Yesterday, while I was waiting for KT to meet me in the lobby to join me on a short trip to the bank, I was reading this short article in Business Week (12/04).

A publishing company has determined that they will not be printing a paperback edition of The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown, anytime soon. At least, not in the United States. However, the paperback editions are available elsewhere, such as England and China. So, you'll have to order one from them.

The funny thing is that the paperbacks are being printed here in the US, but just simply distributed in other countries.

Hardback books are usually reprinted in paperbacks after a year of the initial release. The Da Vinci Code was released in March of '03. To this day, it's still a popular book. That might be the reason for not wanting to go paperback. Perhaps when they see that sales are dwindling on the hardbacks, they'll convert to paperbacks.

So, Kekua get online and order one from Asia.
