George W. Bush's 'Decision Points' Not Selling in San Francisco. But Is it a 'Crime'?

Categories: Business, Politics
Moving books around, however is not a crime.
Following an international trend, some copies of George W. Bush's tome, Decision Points, are mysteriously migrating to San Francisco bookstores' "crime" sections. That's just what happened in the photo accompanying this story, which was snapped in the Borders at the Westfield Center.

But, for most San Francisco booksellers, Decision Points is staying put. Really staying put -- as in not selling. At all. 

A number of local booksellers told SF Weekly they hadn't sold a single copy. Or, in some cases, had sold just a single copy. Not that they were expecting to sell massive quantities of a book relating to George Bush that doesn't involve cartoons, make-your-own targets, or kitty litter liners -- but, still, one copy?

Kevin Ryan, the co-owner of Green Apple Books, earlier pledged to send 100 percent of the profits from hawking Decision Points to the VA Hospital. Sadly, just one copy has been sold at his store.

That's a fat $14 heading to the vets. But Ryan did tell SF Weekly earlier he'd round up the donation to the nearest $50 or $100. Looks like it may be the former if this sales pace keeps up.
