THIS IS IMPORTANT TO SOME PEOPLE IN THE BOOK TRADE
Don't just read this, you can actually help!
You have lots of alternatives
a. Read it and cock your head to one side and think,'oh that's a shame'.
b. Think to yourself 'yes I really ought to do something', and then carry on with life.
c. Not click on the link and therefore know nothing about what i'm typing about.
d. Donate some money, in the knowledge that you're doing it for no personal gain, ie
no one but you will know about it (you don't get a badge, or a cerificate, and Bob Geldof doesn't come round to your house to kiss your children). It's known as a random act of kindness, and if you do it you're likely to live for at least 6 days longer than you would if you didn't.
e. Be offended by me writing this thinking to yourself 'what right has he got to say that the cheeky little punter'
f. Donate some money and tell everyone in the hope that they do it also
g. wonder when this blog's going to get a bit better...you know, like the old days.
I suggest d or f, and in response to g. things will improve very very soon.
