There's buy-a-book GROUP on Facebook now.
As a lifelong reader, I've kind of been following this credo all my life. I tend to accumulate books at a semi-frightening rate, all the more so now that I know so many writers and I find myself buying books with names I recognise on the cover, names of friends and colleagues.
So, for me, it isn't really something to START doing - but I figured, it was in the air, it would do no harm to spread the vibe. Love the story. Dive between the covers, get lost in a new world. And if you liked what you read, let the author know. Seriously.
I was going to do this in a separate post but this seems as good a time as any - well, hey - I'll sweeten the pot a little. Anyone who buys one of MY books for the next four weeks, let me know and let me have a mailing address (I'll lock comments on this, for the purpose of making this as easy as possible) and I'll pop a signed bookplate in the mail to you. A personalised signed bookplate, if you let me know what you want written.
But buy a book. Any book. Go read. It's addictive...
