You know that funny Web site Stuff White People Like,
the one with the jokes? The Canadian guy who runs it just sold a book
to Random House for an advance that publishing insiders said had
reached at least $350,000 when it was at auction last week. Unclear how
high it ended up climbing, but frankly, $350,000 is already a
staggering sum for a paperback inspired by a faddish blog that launched
just over two months ago…
I’m starting the bidding here at $5. Do I hear $6?
