Jan 31- Tragic Life Stories

This is one of those things in life that I simply don't understand. This is a section in one of the biggest bookshop/stationers in the UK.

I freely admit that I can't see the "entertainment" in reading about other peoples miserable lives, battered wives, orphaned children, terminal illnesses - not to mention dogs that find themselves many miles from home, but it is clearly a market that they feel the need to cater for in a big way.

I'm with you on the lack of appeal - no such problems with your very appealing rendering of the image.
many like know there others worse off that themselves and others need help getting out of whole they find themselves in
Bob nailed my thoughts on the matter...

...but it all goes to prove that we are a very very very odd species of ape indeed. I suppose it's the consequence of being such a highly specialised social animal, not really a consolation though.
Sometimes written by people to come to terms with what has happened to them, often read by people who need to know they are not alone.

Interesting subject for an image.
Bill, I knew this was yours - and once again have to say that your use of high contrast throughout this SIJ has shown how great it can be when done with aplomb!

As for the subject visually - it's great and you chose well.

I think it's unfortunate that this bookstore chose that "title" for this collection. As Bob and Will and I'm sure others will state - there are many reasons for books about sadness and challenges... Some books will be purely for the money, while others will offer help and solace. This bookstore should change its "marketing", that's one thing I am sure about.

Can't thank you enough for being part of this project, Bill. I've always enjoyed your submissions and it has been fun to ride along with you.:wink:
