I saw this a few weeks ago at Alison Kent's blog, and decided to play along. What better week than this one, when holiday shopping is on most everyone's mind. I've done my part (okay, more than my part *g*) and all you have to do is tell me which book (under $10 please) you have at the top of your wish list this year.
Contest ends Saturday, November 29th @ noon CST.
In the meantime, do your part. Buy books.
Buy a book this weekend.
Just buy one.
Buy your holiday gifts now. Instead of a CD for your brother, buy him a book on his favorite recording artist.
Instead of going to the library this one week buy the book you were going to read–it might only be a difference of a couple of bucks in the end. One day this week, make a peanut butter sandwich, skip going out for lunch, and buy a paperback.
It doesn’t matter what. It doesn’t have to be a literary fiction hardcover. If could be a $5.99 mass market nutrition guide, a $4.99 young reader chapter book, a Harlequin romance. Your money will still prevent returns of other books (…) Even if it’s not by your favorite author or your favorite publishing house, your favorites will be indirectly affected.
It doesn’t matter where. Sure, buying at the chains will help against the returns, but you can help out the publisher with your purchase no matter how you get it, even on the internet.
