An old friend returns

Last night I signed a copy of my second novel, UNEXPECTEDLY, MILO, which the reader purchased at a garage sale in California.

The book had originally been purchased for the Denver public library but is now stamped with the words NO LONGER PROPERT F DENVER PUBLIC LIBRARY.

What I want to know is this:

Does the Denver public library still have a copy of this book on their shelves, and if not, what the hell? It’s a good book.

More importantly, why bother stamping the first page with that message?

It’s akin to dumping your boyfriend and tattooing “This guy was just dumped by his girlfriend” on his forehead.

Not nice.
