It’s Your World: Read About It!

Beat the “brave new world” on your own terms, by reading much and reading widely. Buy new, if you can. If you can’t buy new, buy used. If you can’t buy at all, ask your public library to buy the book you want, and then borrow it. Fiction or non-fiction, patronize the providers of written words, and if they’re Indie Author-Publishers, so much the better!

An Idea for Indie Book Promotion:

Get your book(s) into a library reading program.

Has your local library acquired your book(s) yet?
Where would your work be listed in the Dewey Decimal Classification System?
How can you help your library encourage its patrons to put your book(s) on their reading program lists?

The Little Red Book Box.

Perhaps sponsoring a box could be a way for a group of Indie Authors to help build readership? Or the next time individual authors donate copies of their books, it could be to nearby book boxes.

An oblong dog-house style book box like this one could have a door and compartment at one end with books for grown-ups, and at the other end hold books for kids.

What would your design be like?

Beyond the Flow

“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation… A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.”

― Henry Miller, The Books in My Life

Do you remember those snazzy red telephone booths from back in the day? Well, that’s what I thought of, when I stumbled across the little red book box at our local park. It was drop dead gorgeous. Indeed, to be perfectly honest, I wanted to take it home with me…along with the book. Designed to withstand the weather, it houses an arm full of books. The concept is, that you take a book and leave a book. So, it operates as a free, community-minded, book exchange.
