Check out our new book formulas!
Based in part on the popularity of our Two Dollar Radio Flowchart, we've been working diligently to come up with other creative and visual ways to help readers find our books.
One of the ideas—which we are excited to finally share with you—is based off of shelf-talkers in bookstores. Booksellers will call attention to a favorite book by writing a blurb on paper and dangling it over the shelf-edge beneath the book. Oftentimes these blurbs incorporate short-hand attempts to get at what the book is about: "This Book is like Cormac McCarthy writing an episode of Saved by the Bell with a soundtrack by Philip Glass." For instance.
For our books, we came up with some simple formulas, sometimes incorporating brands of soda, writers, movie titles, punk icons, or glitter, into math formulas that might ideally serve in a succinct manner as points of reference for a book.
I hope you'll enjoy. We had a lot of fun plotting these out. I even got to doodle a bit!
You can find a formula for books on their individual web-page.
