On Pulitzers and stickers...

My guesses were way off. This year's Pulitzer winner for fiction is The Known World by Edward P. Jones. I want to read it but I'm afraid that if I get it, it'll have that stupid Today Show sticker on the front. Like the Oprah books. In some cases, they're not even stickers but actually printed on the cover. Printed on the cover of The Kalahari Typing School for Men is a little cricle that says "First time in paperback!" Who gives a shit if this is the first time in paperback? I know it just came out in paperback, that's why I bought it. Now there'll forever be this blemish on the book.
