Have you heard the serious criticism?  The newly released Go Set A Watchman, “is not a sequel or prequel to ‘To Kill A Mockingbird.'”

Continuing with bookstore news you may want to know about, Barnes and Noble site relaunch issues still plague users, “It has been partially back up since then but is not functioning at 100%,” wrote one reader. “We have been receiving and shipping out orders from Barnes & Noble since July 19th, but have still not been paid for any of them.” Consider this as you decide the fate of your book on these shelves.
