BAFAB and Me

Well, I spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks getting Buy a Friend a Book Week going. It's been pretty successful: people are blogging about it, and the idea of giving a friend a book for no good reason, as I put it on the site, seems to have struck a chord. So, I'm pleased. As of this writing, there are 83 days, 7 hours, and about 31 minutes remaining until the next one (see the cool countdown clock I installed at BAFAB).

For those of you who are interested in celebrating the next BAFAB Week, come October 1st, I'd recommend that you either subscribe to the BAFAB mailing list (see the subscribe box on the site) to receive a reminder when the time comes, that you subscribe to or visit this blog often (a good idea anyway!),as I'll surely be mentioning it here, or that you make a habit of visiting the BAFAB site frequently. One thing of interest you'll find there are BAFAB Profiles, stories about how some authors chose to celebrate BAFAB Week. Currently you can read about the BAFAB experiences of authors Gayle Brandeis, Melanie Lynne Hauser, and M.J. Rose. More to follow.

For myself, I bought my friend Michael a copy of Susan Kandel's I DREAMED I MARRIED PERRY MASON, which I reviewed recently at A very smart guy with eclectic tastes, I thought he'd enjoy the book's clever channeling of Erle Stanley Gardner.
