I read an article in the French press that said 1/3 of the forest in the Landes region of France has already been cut down to provide the paper for the 500,000 copies of Trierweiler’s book sold in France. Ecologists are concerned that if the book continues to be printed, there will be no forest left. To be honest, I find the subjects of deforestation and tree planting more interesting than the subject matter of Trierweiler’s book.
Madame Trierweiler’s book, Merci pour ce moment, is being translated into 11 languages. To date, she will receive 1.4 million Euros in copyright revenue.
To understand this publishing phenomenon – as well as the author herself – read the article published in today’s British newspaper, The Observer, which is the Sunday sister paper of The Guardian (link below). The tawdriness of Hollande’s affair coupled with Trierweiler‘s vindictiveness provide me with no inspiration to read this book.
