Example sentence(s):
  • Grāmata un reklāma – vai un kas tām kopīgs? Gan vienai, gan otrai pamatā ir vārdi un idejas. Gan viena, gan otra tapusi ar mērķi informēt, atstāt iespaidu, ... reklamaskatalogs.lv/index.php?...Gramata...reklama - http://reklamaskatalogs.lv/index.php?id=  
  • Kādas ir to savstarpējās attiecības? Skaidrs, ka grāmatai reklāma ir nepieciešama – kā gan citādi potenciālais lasītājs uzzinās, ka tieši šī grāmata viņam noteikti jāizlasa. Zemēs, kur lasītāju daudz vairāk nekā Latvijā, to panākt ir vieglāk: grāmatas reklāmai laimējas nokļūt ne tikai īpašos katalogos, anotācijās, recenzijās, plakātos, skatlogos, displejos, bet pat uz autobusu sāniem, karogiem. Latviski iznākošām grāmatām iespēju mazāk – lielākās izdevniecības sarūpē katalogus, žurnālisti informējot reklamē tās presē, radio, reizēm arī televīzijā. Diemžēl, ja salīdzinām gada laikā iznākošo grāmatu skaitu ar jauniestudējumiem teātrī, jaunām izstādēm, koncertiem, filmu pirmizrādēm, jāteic, ka informācijas un reklāmas par grāmatām ir proporcionāli daudz mazāk. Tā nav pozitīva iezīme, turklāt cieši saistīta ar kopējo lasīšanas prestižu sabiedrībā, par ko arvien vairāk uztraucas ne vien skolotāji, bibliotekāri un grāmatu izdevēji, bet pat lielākie preses izdevumu izplatītāji. Gribētos cerēt, ka tuvākajā nākotnē visi ieinteresētie apvienosies, lai ar objektīvu pētījumu palīdzību noskaidrotu, cik, ko un kā mūsu sabiedrība lasa. - Grāmata un reklāma
