Don’t tell me you haven’t done this with your own books.
I’ll admit that after leaving a bookstore my clients tend to have their books face-out.
[I do not recommend moving books around! Publisher pay good money for product placement and the poor booksellers have enough to worry about.]
One day that will be me! 🙂
Well, um, I didn’t move them around the store, but I have turned some of mine from spine view to face-out view.

Not me. But it could be my mother . . .
I’m a Secret Face-Out Agent–not only for my own books, but for people I love too!

Yep, I do it for all of my author friends. 🙂
I think I’ll wear a disguise…at least sunglasses and a hat… a ski mask might lead to false assumptions. Fun, thanks for sharing.
I’ve never, ever faced my books or my author friend’s books. Well, okay, maybe 20 or 30 times.
I repost way too many of your Fun Fridays. This one = awesome. And I must say it presents some new (albeit not bookseller-friendly) ideas.
That was great! My book is due out in three weeks and I can’t wait to try some of those smooth moves out! 🙂
I just love Fridays at Steve Laube’s blog.
I love her sneaking it into the fiction section and saying she made most of the memoir up.
Me? I have never turned a book face-out for my friends and I hope if I ever get published no one will do it for me. If I turn one face-out I’m turning someone else’s spine-out. I can’t do that.
The video, however, was a great way to advertise her book.
