Separately, the LAT looks at the big launch of paperback editions of THE DA VINCI CODE scheduled for March 28. BN fiction buyer Sessalee Hensley says, “We held a very long meeting to decide how many of the paperbacks we would buy. And the number we decided on was staggering compared to other books. It’s the largest buy I’ve made for one book in 20 years.” The manager of a truck stop in New Jersey thinks his customers will be interested, too.

Hensley adds, “Everything contributes to the publicity. Every time there’s a squib about the book in the news, or there’s a short piece about Tom Hanks filming the movie in London, the sales immediately pick up.”
