We were thinking it would be a fun idea to have everyone post up images of your local bookstore's display of the Flamel series!

So next time you're at your local shop, snap a pic and post them here!

Here's one I snapped at a Borders in Canton, OH while traveling this weekend!

Great idea!

The only thing is, since I live in Denmark, I have to get the books from the internet - it's not really a big thing here yet

Sooo Here is the pathetic Sorceress display they had... well its not even a display, its the shelf where the books are classed in alpha order!
I did find a table that had an entire row of The Magician and 2 copies of The Sorceress so my guess is that they are low in book 3 copies so they transformed the self into book 2. Still very lame and disapointing!

Well, the display here in the chapters in London Ontairio Canada is not verry big, but there, semi-big. Im pretty sure that they are layed out on a table mixed in with the twilight books somewhere at the back. Not verry amazing, but cool enough for me. As long as they're there, thats fine with me. I might get a picture later. flamelssecret/Agreed.gif

I tend to guerrilla market when i go into a bookstore. Any bookstore.

If there's no display, but they have the books on the shelf, I rearrange the shelf so the Flamel books are all face out instead of just the binding. If i happen to go back into the bookstore i like to check to see if it's been changed again, and more often than not it's still the way I left it. A few less books, of course, but the Flamel's are still face out.

That is AWESOME. I'm heading to Barns and Noble tomorrow (wife and I been married 5 years tomorrow flamelssecret/hug2.gif so we're going on a date), so I'll snap some pictures of the display if any and do some guerrilla marketing myself.

She hasn't read them yet, but she's not really into the fantasy genre that much.

Thanks for the compliment! And yes the next one will be out next weekend, the 15th.

Let me put on my booksellers hat for the minute: booksellers HATE that. And it really, really irritates them. When I found people doing that in my bookshops, I would simply take the books off the shelves and return them!

Remember, the books are often on particular shelves because the publisher had paid for that placement, or they are in alphabetical order by Author or Title.

I don't put them in a different order, I just turn other books that are facing out so their bindings are out and turn the other books from binding out to face out. The alphabetical order stays the same.

I didn't realize that publishers would pay to have books put face out or binding out, it always just seemed random to me.

That looks a lot like the display in the Borders in Fredericksburg, VA. Except mine has its own display (pretty pathtic, with a row of Alchemyst, one of Magician, and five of the Sorceress lol.
