The folks at The Chalcedon Foundation, who publish my books (www.chalcedon.edu/ ), got quite a charge this morning when they looked on amazon.com and found The Cellar Beneath the Cellar selling for $2,900 and change per copy.
“I should’ve held on to more of Lee’s books,” said one. “Is this some kind of money laundering?” asked another. “And to think you get can my autograph on Ebay for only $30,” remarked our president.
But that was only some of the fun. Amazon had priced The Glass Bridge at $1,471.48 (48 cents?) and The Last Banquet at $689.59. When I checked a little while ago, a used copy of The Last Banquet was priced “from $556.96.” From? You mean it gets higher?
Please don’t tell me anyone has volunteered to pay those prices.
By now, except for that little hiccup with Banquet, amazon.com seems to have rectified the errors. One of our editors thought maybe my books had been swept into the Trump boom. If only!
But I guess y’all better glom onto The Throne before the price goes up. Again.
