Yes it does,
what I like is when you can enjoy
as they do in the book
In Scarlett, she goes and gets some kind of coconut treat so..
of course, I had to get a coconut bar out of the fridge
while I read that part of the book
kind of a co-operative gesture
I think companies could benefit from
some of these things, put a brand in a
book and whoosh perhaps those who read the
book will crave the product.
I think it's possible
Finished Scarlett, now I want to go see Ireland.
Will probably never happen B4 I didn't want to
travel anywhere, now my curiosity has been sparked

they are starting to do that now.......50 shades of Grey is full of product placement....Audi features heavily as do certain wines, Starbucks etc.........it's just one example, but if you consider she's sold 55 million books, that's a helluva lot of advertising..... :wink:

Yes, that is alot of advertising

I know a few who rave about this 50 Shds,
somehow this book sounds little too steamy for me

Scarlett was a good read, esp for those older and have seen the
original film

what to read next?.............anyone got any suggestions? :D
(lol.......and if any publishers need a speed reader who can read a whole (400 word) book in a day AND do a synopsis i'm your gal..........lol............it's worth a try.....lol)



wow fluffs I'm impressed I don't even have time to read the instructions on a microwave meal at the mo (envious). I only read Biographys and have you thought about reading factual books about notorious people, they are quite fasinating about a person's background. Or one I read recently the background to the Amanda Knox/Meridith murder, about the events leading up to it and afterwards. Another great one I read recently was the girl that was an air stewardess and worked as a hostess, Lucy something and the fight her father had to bring the real killer to justice years later. the absolute fluke about actually finding this guy. Things like that I like to read.

the good thing about an official autobiography is that he would have complete control of the content..... :D he could set some records straight and let folk actually see that he's super intelligent ....... so many folk out there (on twitter) seem to think he should just be funny, without being smart and thoughtful too........it's really odd......being one does not discount the other.......lol....
