Once I was browsing in a second-hand book store, and a woman was searching for the books. She was told by the saleswoman, that they were out, but more was always coming in. So yeah, apparently a lot of people bought it because of the hype, but didn't care for it. I'd be curious about such statistics. Getting books electronically definitely solves this problem. So go paperless. I have. :D
