Our Gift To The Author's Guild: An Ad For Brick & Mortar Book Stores

from the community-service dept

Not long ago, Tim Cushing wrote about Author's Guild president Scott Turow's curious assertion that brick-and-mortar book stores are the future of the industry. I didn't think that sounded very likely, but I like a good book store as much as the next person-over-20, so I thought I'd join forces with Tim to give Turow some help in his campaign. We put our heads together and produced this period-appropriate advertisement, for Turow and anyone else to use in advancing the cause of brick-and-mortar. Enjoy!

    Re:

    sounds like you need to try an eink or black and white(gray) lcd screen rather then color, color screens cause alot of people eyestrain over time, where eink and old school lcd's dont tend to have that issue(old skool as in like on your calculator rather then your tablet/smartphone)

    just a suggestion, I find I have an easier time reading eink or b/w lcd in lighted area's and color lcd in the dark.
