It turned out it only took five days to get the first books in stores. I had asked for anyone to let me know if they saw them, and sure enough it was someone I knew: Radio Goddess Kaitlin @Cali_K8 at Barnes & Noble in T-town.
I also heard from a friend that they were selling at Costco in Mobile that same day.
With each passing day I hear some more, like they're now for sale at CVS and Rite Aid stores. Plus, on this past Saturday the championship parade and celebration attracted a ton of people.
Here's hoping a lot of them picked up a copy on their way out of town.
