My bookstore doesn’t have your most recent Alice book and neither does my library. How can I get a copy? Ask your bookstore if the book is on order. If not, ask them to special order a copy for you. You will find that online bookstores often get a book to you faster than a local bookstore.Considering that we can order a book and have it for a customer in two days, that's just not true. Perhaps online bookstores can get you a book faster than a CHAIN bookstore, but not faster than a good independent. I really, really wish more authors had prominent support of indies on their websites. Also, don't we all (especially young people) spend far too much time online anyway? Why encourage an online transaction over one done face-to-face?
