This is something I love about Britain. When I went to London for the first time in 2005, I was just astounded that they advertised books in this way - on the sides of buses and as posters in Tube stations. It's not something I've ever seen in America (although that doesn't mean it doesn't happen). When we visited London this summer, I made sure to take pictures of some of these book posters. What a great way to get the word out there about a new book!

I hadn't realised us Brits are so bookish! Great photos. http://chriscross53.blogspot.co.uk/

I wish we had more of this type of advertising here. Perhaps bookstores wouldn't be so likely to close down if there were some advertising for books.

Now that's some advertising I could get behind!

I have never seen this in the US either although I am not a big traveler...

My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
