Amazon Removes Book Jacket
from the crazy-emailers dept
People have way too much free time on their hands. Apparently, people spent quite a bit of time last week emailing a link around to a book that was for sale on the Amazon.uk site, that showed a Saudi prince next to a plane flying through an opening in a skyscraper. The book is actually about a building that is being built in Saudi Arabia, and it is assumed (since the book is in Arabic, no one seems to know for sure) the book is about the vision of the building (which does include a large opening at the top – though it wasn’t designed to fly an airplane through, according to the architects). Amazon has now removed the image of the book from their site. That article includes a picture of the image (but only if you’ve registered with the NY Times).
