If only Ben had been reading Small Crimes...

The power of Lost. In last night's season finale (and what a mindblower it was!), they had Jacob reading the great Flannery O'Connor's "Everything That Rises Must Converge", and now the book's #89 on Amazon.

Small Crimes would be a good book for Ben. The failed redemption, the narcissism and bad deeds of the central character. One can dream.

Great book but I wonder how many people will read it? Remember that Auden poem selling well because of the Hugh Grant film? I've seen loads of unread copies of Audens Greatest Hits, or whatever it's called, around people's houses.

Lost fans will be reading it to try to decipher any hidden meaning from it. I guarantee you they'll be writing their conspiracy theories on how the book will unveil what's going to happen next season.
