In case you missed it (or ICYMI, as you hip kids like to say):
James Patterson has done a very generous thing.
Patterson is giving various independent bookstores personal grants. As he put it in a NY Times story:
“I do think it’s essential for kids to read more broadly. And people just need to go into bookstores more. It’s not top of mind as much as it used to be.”
I've only read one or two of his books but feel as if I owe him a few more sales after reading this.
Bravo, Mr. Patterson.
