Going! Going! Gone!

Now that Kaavya Viswanathan's book has been withdrawn from bookstores, I foresee a mad scramble to find any copies that happen to be lying around. Usually happens, in such cases. You know, that whole demand-supply thing.

So the point is, I have a copy of the book with me, bought in the days before the scandal washed up in the fond hope that no matter how cliched the cover looked, it wouldn't quite be rehashed Princess Diaries. But now, I am glad I did, for I wish to make my fortune. So I hereby announce the intention of selling/renting/auctioning the book to the highest bidder.

You know where to get in touch. Ok, pip-pip.

Oh, and yes, will you please return said copy? I can already hear them beating a path to this door.

Nice business model you seem to have. I own a copy too (bought for my wife, of course), and the little I read seemed rather decent, plagiarized or not. Maybe we're all being too harsh on poor Kaavya.

Tridib: Go read the whole bloody lot of them, for all I care! Read Princess Diaries too, while you're at it. And oh, a couple of Georgette Heyers would also not be amiss.

Ron: You are not taking this seriously, looks like! Wait till I make pots of money, have own business empire and hire you to do PR. Hyuk hyuk

Raghu: The auction date has yet to be fixed. Watch this space.

Nautilus: Now you're plagiarising my idea! not fair

Lahar: I don't know about too harsh. It's seemed to me too that the relish with which people have gone after her is a bit overdone, but I can't accept what she's done either.

Map, I already sold your copy for half a million dollars. I can buy you a couple of McCafferty-s and Kinsella-s with it :-)
