There's this wonderful quotation from that novel:
Have you read all of these?” Alan asked as he shifted the John Mortimers down one shelf to make room for the Ed McBains.
“Naw,” she said, punching him in the shoulder. “What’s the point of a bunch of books you’ve already read?”
Actually it's quotations from the novel, because of reincorporation, but you get the idea.
