I don’t know about you, but I’m not too happy with Barnes & Noble right now. After the Nook Press for Print announcement, I bet a lot of authors are shaking their heads. But our books are still there – so how about joining in on 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!
[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://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/upgrade-stephen-hise/1100074854.
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.
