Turn up for the books

Sheridan Simove’s book What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex has become a cult success, outselling even the mighty Harry Potter.

Not that the author had much to say on the matter – the book contains 200 blank pages.

But it appears the £4.69 book has more than just novelty value as students cottoning on to the gag have started to use them for lecture notes.

Jess Lloyd, a student at Nottingham Uni, told the Telegraph: 'I bought a copy for my mate as a joke and he started using it as a note pad for lectures. Now everyone seems to have one. It’s started a real craze on campus.'

The book has already sold out its first print-run, and is at number 744 on a list of Amazon best-sellers – which is higher than Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Wacky writer Sheridan Simove, 39, said: I never anticipated that my book would be used for students to take their lecture notes in.

'In a sense they are proving me wrong by filling my book with content. But I wonder how many of them go back to thinking about sex once the lecture is over.'
