Much has been said about how books and the publishing industry need more readers and book sales. A non profit has been created called National Buy a Book Day Foundation to encourage people to go out and purchase a new book on September 7.
Online, in a store, even in a big chain - it doesn't matter where you buy the book and what format you choose and can afford.
Please buy a new book so that the author receives full royalty, and both the publisher and the bookstore receive their full profit.
If you'd like to make an even greater impact, buy from a living author. Help to encourage people who are writing to keep writing.
Support your favorite author(s?) on that particular day and come talk about your purchase, what you're reading and our shared love of books.
