Free Book Friday: The Little Library that Could

Neighborhood Lending Libraries

You have seen them. Those little houses on posts with the glass doors next to the sidewalk. There are several around that I frequent. Since many public libraries were closed during the pandemic, they did come in handy. I always wonder about the etiquette though.

Do I:

  • Return the book to its original home?
  • Put a different book in its place?
  • Put it in a nearby library?
  • Sanitize?
  • Spend some time and organize into genres? Alphabetical order?
  • Leave a note complaining of the lack of reference books?
  • Write a review and leave it in the inside flap?
  • Use them as a dumping place for all the books I don’t read anymore?

Do you make use of these book depositories?

The story behind Free Book Friday:

I’ve met many authors and readers during my time marketing, cross-promoting, and blogging. I think writers have a responsibility to inform readers about all the indie authors out there in the very crowded world of book publishing. You can’t do it alone, and why would you when you have a supportive group available?

Readers don’t just read one author – they stick with their favorite genres. There lies the power in cross-promotion. If one of my readers buys a book from an author I promote, then chances are there will be a reciprocal effect, or so is the hope. Do I want to boost sales? Of course I do. Do I want to boost other’s sales? Why not. It’s called karma.

Speaking of free, do you want to review either of my books? Drop me a message telling me why (and the format).
