It’s always nice to get a weekly update that tells me a couple of copies of Grave Thief have been shifted in the previous week, but it’s a fairly predictable level now so I find myself more fascinated with the titles around mine. Just above me is, rather wonderfully I think though can’t fully explain why, is Mr Lazy, by the legendary Roger Hargeaves, who also have a couple of Little Miss titles just a bit up the page. One or two places above Mr Lazy is River God, a book I absolutely loved, and just below; the complete Beatrix Potter tales. So that’s me, amid the classics and huge bestsellers from the 80s. It’s a far better place to be than up the top with Stephanie Meyer, ptah.
