hey you! Yeah, you with the teetering stack of books to read and the book blog that I read all the time.
I need to talk to you for a minute.
Your blog is an awesome way to promote the books you love. Thanks to you, my “books I want to read” list explodes weekly. Thanks to you, I’m spending far too much money at the local family owned bookstore, demanding they carry the newest titles of my favorite authors, putting books on hold before they even hit the shelf. I’m sure you’ve done the same.
Bloggers. Bookstores. where’s the connection?
Many of you already know about the rockin’ awesome project I’ve started with Elizabeth of Dark Cargo. Some of you have even already started participating. A few of you were even part of my little trial experiment a few months ago! It’s called Bookstore Bookblogger Connection, and it’s for bloggers (like us!) and bookstores (you know, those peeps we give all our money to!), to have a connection.
