Did you know that authors of the 30 volumes being given away have waived all the royalties they would have earned by moving so many copies of their books? If each book was printed in equal numbers, and if the target of 1,000,000 books was produced, that means each of the writers waived royalties on over 30,000 copies of their work. In addition, it appears that the paper to print the books was donated, along with the publishing costs, shipping costs, and distribution costs. This is rather amazing, if you think about that.
I'll be giving my books to members of the book club at the senior living center that my 90-year-old father moved into two years ago. I'm waiting on final word as to the exact timing on Tuesday night, but I'm in the homestretch now. I hope to get some good pictures of the ladies (typically, I don't think there are any male members of the club) and will post them on Book Chase next week.
