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!

    Sounds like they got a bonus for new memberships and she really wanted that bonus. I hate when businesses do that. It was one of the reason why I hated working at EB games. They wanted us to push memberships and subscriptions to their crappy magazine. I hated doing that.

    Me too, though for me it was extended warranties for crap that would cost more to insure than to go out and buy again.

    Pushing EB memberships were as much free money for EB as pushing extended warranties were for the Good Guys/Best Buy/Whatever...
