Not much of a bump

A report out today says that winning the Nobel Prize for her writing increased Alice Munro book sales by more than 4,000 percent in her native Canada, and by multiples of thousands elsewhere, too.

Wondered if demand went up for her books in the library here.

But, there's no real way to tell. We have only three of her books, and of those one is "missing."

We don't have the newest one, which came out, I think, right the week of the Nobel announcement.

And until we get it in, no one can reserve it.

Publicity surrounding the prize doesn't hurt, that's for sure. I just can't translate that into anything meaningful here.
