There's an interesting article here: http://ranobecafe.wordpress.com/2009...-do-they-work/

It talks about how some Light Novels get TV commercials in Japan (it shows some as well in the article), and asks if maybe publishers like Yen Press should consider making one for novels like "Haruhi Suzumiya". What do you think? Should Haruhi's novels get a book trailer to air on TV to create more awareness? Would it even help? lol

I can't remember if I've even seen a commercial for an entertainment-type book before. I've seen infomercials for self-help type books or whatever.

The closest I think I've ever seen is advertisements for things based on books.

There used to be commercials for really popular hardcover novels, like the latest Dan Brown novel or something. It really isn't worth the money that it costs to buy the ad time for a book like Haruhi.

I sort of recall TV ads for things like "Goosebumps", but that was general during or around the airing of the show based on that series. The only way you are going to find a Haruhi ad would be if some station was airing Haruhi.

They do radio ads for novels sometimes. I remember one in particular that had to have done more to hinder sales than help them. Had some guy reading some actiony scene where a plane goes down because a pilot gets sick, and the dialog was worse than a hundred Twilights... *shudders*

Haruhi's a bit of a niche property, though... Don't really see normal advertising tricks working for it...

There's a video review for the Haruhi light novel out: http://ranobecafe.wordpress.com/2009...ruhi-suzumiya/

I thought the way the video was filmed was pretty good.

(by the way, I looked on Barnes and Noble a day or so ago, the hardcover of Haruhi is selling more now, and twelve kingdoms is dropping slowly. So perhaps when the next monthly ranks for english light novels is out, Haruhi will be #1. lol)

A lot easier than typing them, apparently.

After finally going to my local B&N, which actually in the next town over, I find the first volume for the novel and the first 2 for the manga. Also, I noticed that B&N got rid of the graphic novel section. And instead of getting the novel or the manga, I get Freakonomics.

That sucks dude. Wait, why would they get rid of their GN section? IT'S A CONSPIRACY!

So according to the email I just got from B&N my hardcover copy of Sigh is ready to ship. This is kind of early lol, but I remember getting Melancholy a couple weeks before the release date, too.

Barnes and Noble.com says that it's out, and offers it as such on their site.

I found manga scattered the teen novel section and there was a small table with new releases...

Anyways, I actually recommend Freakonomics...

I've bought hardbound books before in bookstores that didn't "officially" release until the following month. At least according to the book's copyright/publishing dates.

Ok, now that it's officially translated as Sigh instead of Sighs, will we use the former or will we ignore it like the people that ignore the fact that S2 isn't S2?

*looks at 'need to buy' bookslist* Hmm, I need to go bookshopping

Is not like it really matter. It is just an s. The S2 issue is much bigger, actually.
