So that's why our table is more or less permanent, at least somewhere in the store. But it was put together very quickly, because my former boss Carol was filming a promo for the Milwaukee Film Festival just as our store opened.
Now we've freshened it up with a rather complete list of films adapted from books (including a major book with a name change--Saphhire's Push has become Oprah's Precious.) The list is adapted from Entertainment Weekly's double-issue movie preview. I have a subsciption (of course--how could I not when they gave Elinor Lipman's The Family Man a glowing review and also put it on the "Must List.") but it seems like an issue that we should sell out in the store.
Prove me wrong! We put copies of Newsweek on their "what books to read now" display and we sold out the magazine.
I love lists. Did you figure that out yet?
