see what books are on the bookshelves. It has given rise to a new trend. buying
books by the yard - so you can appear well read and maybe conceal your real reading pleasure. What does your bookshelf say about you?
Are you an intellectual, a traveller or a lover of murder mystery?
Also, have you noticed how those being interviewed on news programs, strategically place their own books, title showing prominently facing the camera. Good luck to them, too good a promotion opportunity to miss. Next time I appear on television, look for my latest book boldly displayed in a prime position.
