Novel Catchup

I thought it was worth catching up on a few things that have been discussed in comments but we haven't pointed out on the main site.

Firstly something that is slightly confusing at the moment, which may be significant, or may just be a simple mistake is the sticker on the spine of the book.

You can see in the photo to the left from the Amazon website that shows what appears to be a sticker from a library with a dewey decimal classification on it. I don't think anyone has been able to read it fully yet, so that in itself may be a clue.

However pictures on other websites, including the official site do not have this sticker.

So what do we think is this a mistake or a potential clue ?

In the comments of the Cover Story post Tess points out that the original novels subject "Ship of Theseus" is a Greek paradox that raises the question of whether an object which has had all its components replaced remains fundamentally the same object.

It would be remiss of me as a LOST fan if I didn't point out that the philosopher "John Locke" wrote about this paradox.
Finally for now in the comments Just Thinking gave links to the N Y Daily News website and the Coming Soon website which both mention that the novel contains pieces of ephemera such as maps, postcards, letters and photographs which help to illustrate the story that is set around the book.
The mystery is deepening and my interest in reading it has definitely intensified.
