BookFinder.com has released the Top 10 Out of Print Books in the US, or, more specifically, the books most sought-after. Now, the article doesn’t indicate HOW they know these books are “sought-after.” What does “analysis of national demand” mean. Price? Frequency of searches? Amount paid on eBay?
Anyway, check out #3 and #7 on the list, yo.
#3- “Promise Me Tomorrow” (1984) by Nora Roberts; early novel that the bestselling romance novelist refuses to reprint, describing it as “mediocre.” (BookFinder.com Report 2008 #2 Fiction and Literature title)
