Today’s question, from Wendi’s Book Corner: Were you aware of the Member Giveaways Program? Have you posted any books in the giveaway? If so, what are your thoughts on the program? Have you requested any books, and if so, did you win any?
Yes, I was aware of the Member Giveaway Program. I have requested a couple of books, but I have honestly tried to stay away from it. (While looking through it again for this post, I requested a few more.) I am an addict! The first step is to admit that I am powerless against my addiction to books. Nothing will stop me from acquiring more books – not a lack of bookshelves, not a lack of time to read them – and giving them away free like that just makes it worse!
Seriously, I think it’s a fine program. I was a little curious why someone (not an author or publisher) would choose to give away a book there when there are so many swaps and mooches available, but it seems to have gotten great response so far. I am all in favor of anything that gets books into people’s hands.
