This is not a book summary, I just wanted to take a moment to thank James Patterson for taking a stand and publicly supporting bookstores and libraries. The moment I came across this, (I believe, in my MuckRack Daily) I shared it with everyone I know and our esteem for Mr. Patterson raised remarkably. My hat is off to you Mr. Patterson.
Certainly we are living in a time of change.
Booksellers and especially libraries are places where authors and their works are treasured and recommended.
More importantly – libraries are gathering places for all. Support yours, and if you don’t like your library – take action to make it better. There are a lot of outstanding libraries out there…see what they are doing and how they are doing it to make yours worth your donations and tax dollars.
