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.

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.

I have to say, I do this too. I sorta have OCD, especally if the books are not in sequence but I don't take it off the shelf as well. I'l have to take my camera to the local bookshop now. mind you, they only have the Magician in paperback and its at the bottom shelf

OMG me too! xcept my OCD is complete perfectionOCD. But not too bad. Just that I am in the top of my English class, and people glare at me because I constantly correct their grammar
And Aquose- I swear that is the bookshelf at Borders in Fredericksburg. Maybe not, though. idk.
I think I wanna be a bookseller, though. In my spare time. Fun-writing and bookselling!

I would try using a site like photobucket or imageshak to upload your image.


And here are some pictures I took

this is from a Barnes and Noble near my house

From looking at the pictures I'd say you guys are pretty lucky to have displays like that. Around here not those many books get big displays and it really does look ike you have a rather large fantasy book section.flamelssecret/sFun_drool2.gif
Not quite so here, unfortunetly, the tourist guide section is bigger than the fantasy section.

Oh man, I so wish I was home right now to take some pictures! Alas, I am away to school.

I work at my local bookstore haha (best job ever, btw) and I focus most of my attention on the young adult and graphic novels section. I have to say, we didn't have many copies of the series in our store at all (it's just a Borders express, very small and without as wide a selection unfortunately) but when I read the Alchemyst I ordered some more copies in, and was pushing the series a lot with customers. Of course, since I'm not there to continue doing that they've probably been returned or sold out without being restocked >>;.

When I left, though, The Alchemyst was part of a buy 2 get the 3rd free sale so it was in a display on the front wall, and there were a few copies of The Magician and The Sorceress in the regular young adult section. No face outs because there weren't enough copies :[.

Holy pie. That is awesome. You're a great photographer, as well. Or you have a sweet camera. I hope to go to the DC event.

Hahaha! Maybe he just didn't want to be able to see us! And Silvertouch thanks so much for the compliment and I will duly give it to the girl who was sitting behind me (with a very nice camera) who took all the pictures!

Keep your eyes open for more pics. I'm submiting them as news.

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!
