#shelfie: Kristopher Jansma

Oxford Dictionaries named “selfie” the word of the year. Just this week, linguist Ben Zimmer mentioned it as he discussed options for the American Dialect Society’s word of the year on NPR’s All Things Considered. Both organizations mentioned the spin-off “shelfie”. So, what’s a shelfie? Well… it’s a peek inside your soul! It’s a look at who you are through your bookcase.

Introduce your customers to the concept. Post this #shelfie on your Facebook page or other social media. This #shelfie belongs to Kristopher Jansma, author of The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards, which will be released in paperback on February 25th. The books in the background? Research for his forthcoming book due out in 2015!

I posted another #shelfie of Kristopher on the Books & Whatnot Facebook page, so you have choices if you’d like to post one. Be sure to follow Kristopher on Facebook, and hand-sell the heck out of The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards.
