Bookshops I love: Waterstone's Deansgate (yet again!)

Today I had one of those moments that can make an author's entire week. Last time I went into Waterstone's Deansgate they had four copies of The Birth Machine. I went in today and they had ten, (stacked face outwards - see pic!). What did it mean? Had they ordered more, or just got some out of the storeroom? I plucked up courage and asked, and the assistant told me that they keep reordering it because it's selling, adding, 'Well, it's such a good book. I've read it myself and it's a really good book.'

Not sure I can convey quite how chuffed that made me! Thank you so much, the fiction staff at Deansgate!
