With all the to-do about Kindle Unlimited, everyone seems to have forgotten about Barnes & Noble. I bet they feel really left out. How about we make up for that right now by having a Barnes & Noble book page fest?
This is how it works: If you are an author with a book listed on Barnes&Noble.com, in the comments below, write a SHORT one sentence blurb about ONE of your books, then paste in your link to that book below it. (If you post more than one book, to be fair to everyone else, we will delete all except for the top link, so please behave and post only ONE book link! And please do NOT paste your author page.) Make sure you show some love to the links in the comments above yours, and check back throughout the day to catch up. If you’re a publisher, editor, librarian, or reader, please check out these book pages – you may see something you like!
Just so there is NO question about what should be clicked or shared where, check out this screen capture:
[Don’t forget, if you right-click the links, you can choose to have them open in a separate tab so you don’t have to worry about navigating back and forth to pages.]
This should be fun and should generate a lot of likes for everyone’s books. Let’s get things moving – and here’s a book to get you started: http://tinyurl.com/UPGRADEtheNovel
To those with concerns about the ethical implications of “liking” a book you have not read, we regard likes as more analogous to a “high five” than a rating or review. We do not support the idea of rating or reviewing a book you have never read.
PLEASE be sure to reciprocate by liking the other pages. This is give and take. If everyone plays by the golden rule, we all benefit.
IU is a safe-for-work site. PLEASE do not post links to erotica, religious, or political books.

Edge of the Knife

Easy jobs aren’t always as easy as they seem.
Silly question: I’m liking all of the books listed here, and when I do a little check mark appears, but what else happens? Where is the like “recorded”? Next to the “like” button is a G+ button with a number representing the number of “G+’s” that book has already received. I’m not seeing a similar number next to the like button, and while it appears to be a button associated with FB, I visit my FB page and see no evidence of having liked the books. So…where does my like go?
It should be showing up on your profile, Stephanie. Try checking under your activity button.
Ah…I see it now. Thank you! 🙂
I’ll plead ignorance on this one. Where is the ‘activity’ button you’re referring to? On B&N’s site?
The activity button is on Facebook.
