The Brick Testament sells out

Friday, January 9th, 2004 - 1:32 am PST

Whoever accused The Brick Testament of selling out was totally right. Rev. Smith’s book, which received a flood of press coverage just before the winter holidays, has become exceedingly hard to find. While sites like Amazon and Walmart.com await the arrival of a second printing due sometime this month, impatient consumers have scoured brick and mortar stores, searching for the last few copies left on shelves. The scarcity has driven up prices on the second hand market, with the book now going for as much as $24.56 on Half.com and $43.96 on Amazon.
