The Terminator was recently booked for an upcoming book appearance at Bookends in Ridgewood, NJ, but one problem. Many die-hard fans weren't aware of the booking and it's since sold out. Bookends reportedly did a Flash Sale this past Friday, Oct. 6 for the Arnold Schwarzenegger event today, Wed. Oct. 11 at 5:30 pm.

The book store, known for many high-profile celebrity book signings, took to their Facebook page Tuesday to announce that the event was Sold Out.

Schwarzenegger is appearing at the book signing and photo-op event pushing his new book, Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life. Many fans took to the Bookends Bookstore posting on Facebook, visibly angry with the lack of advertising for the event. Nothing was reportedly advertised on the store's Facebook for the event, just the website, which left some people infuriated.

Of the over 100 comments on the thread, at least one person seemed to defend the bookstore, stating that the angry mob clearly wasn't aware of how a "flash sale" works.

Tiny But Awesome Book Stores In Upstate New York!

With Independent Book Store Day now in the rear view mirror, this gallery looks at a collection of the best (and smallest) of them all in Upstate New York. We have looked at the large indie book stores in Buffalo, Albany, Rochester, etc. in previous galleries'. But this one is for the little guys. The book stores range in communities with a high population of 17,000 to a hamlet with a teeny tiny population of under 400 residents. And they are all great!
