The Last Lecture

I arrived at work this morning to find news that The Last Lecture, a new inspirational book by dying professor Randy Pausch, has sold out just about everywhere. According to the book's publisher, Hyperion, an ABC special with Diane Sawyer prompted an unexpected sales boom, which has consequently outstripped supplies of the book. I am happy to say that, since we have the best book buyers in the business, we were prepared for this sales explosion and still have copies of the book in our store (and available for sale online). Once these copies are gone, however, no one can say when we'll be able to get the book back in stock.

How inspiring Randy Pausch is! If you liked "The Last Lecture", another fantastic memoir I just read and highly recommend is "My Stroke of Insight" by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Her TEDTalk video ( has been seen as many times as The Last Lecture I think, and Oprah did 4 shows on her book, so there are a lot of similarities. In My Stroke of Insight, there's a happy ending though. It's an incredible story! I hear they're making it into a movie.
