Terrific! Perhaps this will help garner attention for Adam Selzer's Smart Aleck's Guide To American History, which is coming out this December.


It's funny to see how proud Adam is about the whole situation. I love all the publicity he's getting as a result.

reader and writer

I think it is great publicity for a book I haven't heard of. It sounds funny and appealing to boys, which we all know we need more of on library/bookstore shelves. So good for the author!

Oh, and does anyone but me want to send the cranky burn-this-book woman a copy of Sherman's "Part Time Indian?" Maybe then she can protest the National Book Awards as well.


And because of your post and the attempt to get the book removed from the library, I now have that book on my TBR list. Sometimes I wonder if publishers have considered paying people to ask that their books be removed from libraries, to drum up more publicity and get more people to read them. There's no better way to get people interested in something than to have someone try to bury/ban/censor/remove it. That might become one of the most popular books in Caldwell, now.

Reminds me of Steven Tyler of Aerosmith saying the following to Tipper Gore regarding music warning labels back in the 1980s: "And a special thanks to Tipper Gore, for insuring that any album with a few dirty words will always sell an extra million copies."

I hope Mr. Selzer achieves similar sales. If so, hopefully he'll dedicate his next book to the complaining woman.


Aaaaaannnndddd....people are still bloody idiots. *rolls eyes* Hurray for more book sales!

It's a great book, and if this makes people read it, then I guess it's not a bad thing. I think this is called karma!
