Amtrak advertising - Boston

Had a day trip to Boston yesterday. When I got off the Amtrak in Back Bay station, I was surprised to see the walls along the platform plastered with large ads for the Sony Reader (and not much else!). Most ads had a picture of the Reader upright next to a pile of books, and a varied catchphrase (like "Bring 50 of your favorite books in your carry-on" or something like that!). Plus, there was a huge Reader floor advertisement (seemed to be permanently glued to the floor) about 10 feet square, before the entrance to the subway turnstiles.

I also had someone across the aisle ask me about my Reader and book availability. I told her why I chose the Reader over the Kindle, mentioned general availability of books on various sites, and pointed her to these forums for lots more good info.

Sony appears to be making a major advertising push, at least in certain areas. And the Amtrak business traveler crowd seems to be a good demographic. (Yes, I was using my Reader for much of the NY-Boston trip!)

I know Back Bay station quite well. And I have seen the adverts. Quite good actually.
