Barnes & Noble Faces Scorn Over Kerry Book Sellout
The Curmudgeony Librarian writes "Bookstore giant Barnes and Noble finds itself in hot water from both sides of the political fence as copies of the controversial book "Unfit for Command" have sold out. The book, written by John O'Neill and Jerome Corsi, is critical of Presidential candidate John Kerryâ€™s war service. In an already contentious political season, this book shortfall has only fueled controversy. Some customers claim this shortage is intentional and accuse the chain of hiding the book. At the same time, some critics of the book have asked the chain to remove the book from their shelves."
