There's thinking outside the box, and there there's...

hoping to get media coverage for it?

Ny Post reports in its Page Six column that they spotted CBS News Sunday Morning correspondent Bill Geist selling copies of his new book WAY OFF THE ROAD from a wheelbarrow by the TKTS booth in Times Square. He's quoted as saying "I expect fierce competition from the pashmina and purse peddlers, but my book is not a knockoff." He also claimed to be trying to get permission to sell his book from toll booths.

[Full disclosure: My guess is that he hoped to generate a little buzz by hanging out in the nation's media center, not one of the small towns he writes about. Right now the book is #56 on Amazon, so maybe he doesn't need to worry.]
