I paid the full hardcover price for “Where The Crawdads Sing,” by Delia Owens. I didn’t shop around, I didn’t score Target’s 30% off- the- cover steal (look out for the sticker on a lot of their books!) but merrily handed over my credit card at That Bookstore in Wethersfield, Connecticut, watched the cashier add […]
