I Planted My Self-published Book On Booksop Shelves . . .

Posted at 8:55AM Wednesday 21 May 2014

So why not give a few copies away, or "donate" inventory to Barnes & Noble? That's not illegal, is it? I mean, you can't walk in and take a book off the shelf and put it in your jacket and walk out — but there's no law that says you can't walk into the store with a book in your jacket and put it on the shelf, is there? Nah. It was a genius strategy, I thought, congratulating myself.
