"A Book" is a Thai publishing house, that wanted to advertise when people were waiting, which is a great time to read a short story or nibble a little on a good book. They printed short stories on queueing tickets. They allowed people to attach short stories to their "I'll be late" text messages, anyone who was late could txt a number with the phonenumbers of their friends waiting for them, and they would receive a text message with a short story to occupy them while they waited. They also had "A Book" placemats in restaurants that people could read while waiting for their meal to arrive. Fast food eaters weren't left out, they had "A Book" line stickers, so one could read a novel while queueing up to order.
In short, time to kill? Read a book.
