a nice random image to get you started:

i now have a FLICKR page too!

"why would a reviewer make the point of saying someone's *not* a genius? do you especially think i'm *not* a genius? you didn't even have to think about it, did you?"

"monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey.”

"i am secretly afraid of animals.... i think it is because of the usness in their eyes, with the underlying not-usness which belies it, and is so tragic a reminder of the lost age when we human beings branched off and left them: left them to eternal inarticulateness and slavery. why? their eyes seem to ask us."

"we've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of shakespeare. thanks to the internet, we now know this is not true..."

african monkey proverb: "the day the monkey is destined to die, all the trees get slippery."

"i'll buy a bunch of monkeys, dress them up, and make them re-enact the civil war"

I hate those stickers, they devalue the book too

i hate them too. if its worth having on the cover, put it in the design of the cover. if not, don't bother with shitty stickers.

oooh, it makes me angry!

Nail Varnish remover & some cotton wool will get it off. Try it - not sure what it will do to the cover of your books - if it's waxy it could be ok...

Lighter fuel will get it off and leave no trace

3rd Oct 2006, 13:22

i'll try it - its fairly waxy. i remember i did that to a cd of mine, and it turned the plastic opaque. which was not the desired effect!

Eeek! I hate that. Our Barnes & Noble is really good on using easy peel stickers, which I appreciate.

3rd Oct 2006, 14:44

yeah. i left a slighty worse feedback than he perhaps deserved, which i'm beginning to regret, but that sticker was glued on with something strong enough to hold the spaceshuttle together...

Bastards! Have they no respect! Hmpf! :)

3rd Oct 2006, 15:33

exactly. i'm by no means prissy about books, paintist will echo that, but i like 'em to be free of adverts and promotions in which i have absolutely no interest. this one was a garish 'as featured in blah blah film...' which sort of detracts from the simplicity of the cover, i feel

paintist says:

dont worry...when you have destroyed the cover it will be barely noticeable....

3rd Oct 2006, 15:46

yeah yeah...

Almost looks like a ninja hiding in the bushes. Just a thought for you if further removal efforts don't work:)

Goo Gone works perfectly!! It'll take those horrid stickers right off and leave your book in one piece.

I should get a copy of that.

It's a good book. My favourite part is the small bit about what to say to some one if they say you're short. it involves chopping of their head.
In all seroiusness though it's interesting and thought provoking.

a small bit of furniture polish and a soft cloth gets them off cd's and dvd's not sure about books tho....

4th Oct 2006, 14:55
