#MakeABookNaughty via Hashtag, You’re It!: @BrandNewMcMann The Top Picks


Hey, what can I tell you, sex sells. Writing has been around for a long, long , long, LONG time. Hell, historians use the invention of writing as the difference between prehistory and history. So it’s a big deal. Humans writing down their thoughts for education or entertainment is the oldest form of communication there is. Books back then were owned by the rich and meant power. In the 1450’s that imbalance of power was corrected when Johannes Gutenberg created the very first printing system that allowed books to be cheaply massed produced meaning that everyone could own a book and the knowledge there in. Books have taken us to wondrous places that we could never do in the real world. Jules Vern can take from the Earth to the Moon. Willy Wonka can give us a golden ticket to his chocolate factory. Harry Potter can take us to a school for magic. A Wardrobe can transport us to Narnia. Sam I Am can force us to eat green eggs and ham. Buuuuuuut, how can we make books even MORE popular than they already are? That’s easy…….turn them sexy. If we do that Barnes & Noble will become the most powerful company in the world. So how can we make books even sexier? That’s what I asked Twitter this week with the hashtag #MakeABookNaughty. So light a few candles, draw a bubble bath, turn down the lights and check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”
