If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.
I think it’s refreshing to hear there’s still integrity in some aspects of business; something sadly lacking in most commercial enterprises these days. Good for them!
I think it’s refreshing to hear of an enterprise with integrity who are not motivated purely by greed. Good for them!
That was my gut reaction too and they don’t even mention it on their website (I think if it were me I would at least be blowing my own trumpet!)
Good for them I say! But, think they should have stuck a couple of copies on eBay 😉
It’s not easy being an independent bookshop, competing against Amazon….the auction on ebay could have paid the electricity bill for awhile I guess. I did read that they kept four copies back for the staff.
Very honourable of them. Not sure I could’ve resisted. Sweet they kept four copies back for their staff. Maybe this is very good PR for them and they’ll reap the benefit that way? I hope so. Incidentally, the book sounds like a cracking read if you like crime.
I do like crime fiction so it’s on my to-read list…and turning to the question of what I would have done with 250 copies I suspect at least one would have found its way onto ebay. I’ve been trying to work why I like this story so much…I think it’s because the good booksellers of Goldsboro didn’t treat the ‘market’ as God. Just because they could get more for the books didn’t mean that they should….
