Hillary Acosta owns a famous book store in the Manaus city of Brazil. She uses nobody and nothing but the topmost authors of Portuguese language for the promotion of her book store.
Hillary’s store used to provide books for rent as well until they started abusing it.
Hillary attributes a great deal of her book store’s success to the ample parking space area available by her store which is very rare in the busy Manaus city.
Hillary has made the claim many times that more people now gift books to their loved ones than ever before and contrary to the popular belief that the book industry is in desperation, Hillary claims that Amazon Kindle, iPod, etc never had much influence on the sales of the real life books and she ridicules Amazon Kindle, iPod, etc by claiming that those are all toys for the kids to play with. “They never had and will never have any influence on the ever-prospering book industry”, she adds.
Hillary herself doesn’t drink any coffee and she doesn’t eat unhealthy snacks either as she has a modeling and acting past and she still cares about her body like she used to back in the modeling days. She even has a Youtube channel dedicated to skin and body care, where she posts videos on topics like expression lines (linhas de expressão), how to tone yourself, etc.
Although Hillary herself doesn’t drink any coffee or eats snacks at all, she claims that the coffee shop and snacks bar at their book store are so delicious that a great percentage of customers come only for that.
Everyday, they give a free t-shirt printed with their book store’s logo to a random customer and that’s one of the reasons for Hillary’s store being so popular.
