    Well, in a mystery section, it must be a mystery which book you are getting. Seeing the spine with the title just gives the ending away prematurely (or am I missing something else about the picture?)

    Another good one is one I saw on the net that had a section label “Religious Fiction”. Tautology.

    Yes… Mystery… makes sense. very neat too. and funny.

    Not sure I would consider it practical though. Or actually I am sure about its practicalness…

    That’s standard when you’re doing inventory. Sorry, not so mysterious.

    this would mean that it would be made hard for the fans/readers of Mystery books to quickishly fund the books of their prefered authors. perhaps that would assist browsing. but more perhaps it would reduce sales. i remain puzzzled by this marketting method

    Reminds me of a recent visit to the library where I asked, “Where is the self-help section?” The librarian said, “Can’t tell you, that would defeat the purpose.”

    Stephen, I got the first letter and every one particular after EXCEPT Margaret Cho’s. Can you remedy that, please?
