Make it Count Twice

This is old news, but on two indistinguishable editions of Condoleeza Rice's memoirs were on display at the bookstore today:

Like most of us, Condi only had one childhood, but why limit yourself to selling only one childhood memoir when you can make more money selling two? The brick and mortar bookseller left it at that; Amazon clarifies that the 352-page Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family is meant for adult audiences while the "distilled" 336-page Memoir of My Extraordinary, Ordinary Family and Me, which retails for nearly $10 less, is for "young adults, 7th grade reading level and higher."
