    I think I spotted you in the background, just briefly, listening to Beverly Jenkins.

    One of the commenters at the SB’s posted a link to the segment, so I’ll add a link here too for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.

    I don’t know how I missed it! I was glued to the set from 7 am to 9 am (when Regis came on) and never saw a segment.

    Thanks for the link. We saw you J but you know, that subtitle of SEX BETWEEN THE SHEETS was awful and cringe-worthy for a category of books that outsells any other genre.

    Jude – I think it ran a little after 9 am CST.

    Also saw it and cringed at the subtitle. Put the tv on it at work and stood there with 2 male co-workers while they showed mostly scenes from “Sex and the City.”

    The context was rather surprising. They were going with ‘sex sells’ and although that may be true, it’s a trite statement about women’s fiction.

    Jane, I believe they had a brief segment with SB Sarah so they could use, ‘trashybooks.com’.

    What steams me particularily, the con is about books/reading and the SatC segments were totally inappropriate.
