Day 1: Watcha Reading?
Someone once asked if seeing people read library copies of my book made me sad, because it meant they didn’t buy the book.
No way guys, not a bit. I love it. In fact, it makes me more excited to see my book in a library than it does to see my book in a store! It means that a librarian somewhere looked through the very long list of books coming out and decided that mine deserved a place in the collection, which is awesome when you consider the serious budgetary problems a lot of library systems face. It means that people have the chance to read my books regardless of whether or not they can afford to buy books. It means my books aren’t restricted to anyone. And this picture means that people are using libraries, which is great because libraries are a wonderland of reading and also the closest you or I will probably ever get to being a contestant on Supermarket Sweep (where you run through the shelves just tossing books into your bag, any book you want, as many as you want!).
So yeah, if you want to read my book and you get it from a library, that’s awesome. Thank your librarian for having it on the shelf for you. And thank your librarian from me. And thank YOU for being interested in my words!
Basically, I’m loving life right now. I think I’ll go to the library…
