PS about buying BOOKS

Thought you'd enjoy an e-mail that I [and other members of the Authors Guild] just received from humorist and Guild president Roy Blount Jr. [see previous post].

Dear members:

The Guild's staff informs me that many of you are writing to ask whether you can forward and post my holiday message encouraging orgiastic book-buying. Yes! Forward! Yes! Post! Sound the clarion call to every corner of the Internet: Hang in there, bookstores! We're coming! And we're coming to buy! To buy what? To buy books! Gimme a B! B! Gimme an O! O! Gimme another O! Another O! Gimme a K! K! Gimme an S! F! No, not an F, an S. We're spelling BOOKS!


PPS from Marie: Well, I posted it without asking.
PPPS. Tomorrow, back to Central Park Nature News
