CopyKaavya: Crown’s List of 45

Publishers Marketplace provides a handy PDF document outlining all 45 instances where Kaavya Viswanathan allegedly copied Megan McCafferty’s SLOPPY FIRSTS and SECOND HELPINGS. Here’s but a few more:

#41: I wanted to change the subject because I did not like the fact that Bridget of all people had just psychoanalyzed me with such accuracy.
McCafferty, Sloppy Firsts (Three Rivers, 2001), page 301

I squirmed, uncomfortable at being so accurately psychoanalyzed, and by Sean, of all people.
Viswanathan, How Opal Mehta…Got a Life (Little Brown, 2006), page 171

#43: “‘Omigod!’” shrieked Sara, taking a pink tube top emblazoned with a glittery Playboy bunny out of her shopping bag.”
McCafferty, Sloppy Firsts (Three Rivers, 2001), pg. 68

“…buy me a pink tube top emblazoned with a glittery Playboy bunny.”
Viswanathan, How Opal Mehta…Got a Life (Little Brown, 2006), pg. 51

No wonder Viswanathan wasn’t terribly convincing on the Today Show this morning. (As Ron notes, turns out plagiarism doesn’t smell so “sweet and woodsy” [alleged infraction #19] when you get caught!)
