And Speaking of Videos...

Our latest Book of the Month ad (for Werner Herzog's Conquest of the Useless) has been picking up buzz from blogs all over the place, including the publisher, Ecco Books!

This mention is from fellow indie bookseller Thomas Riggs & Company:

Green Apple Books of San Francisco, one of the best-loved independents in the Bay Area, is creating an atmosphere all its own with videos to promote its Book-of-the-Month recommendations. These decidedly low-budget videos feature scruffy-looking but enthusiastic staff members hamming it up in testimonials, “dramatizations,” and “reenactments” related to the featured book... the videos have some infectious appeal, and they’re getting more sophisticated...

Thanks for the mention, but... who you callin' scruffy-looking???

Harrison Ford is tha shit! Does your book have him in it? If it does I would definitely be interested in reading it. i don't get away from the drug rehab I work at very often.
