That was a really interesting article. A librarian friend once told me that my books were the most likely to be stolen from her library. Call me perverse, but I was kinda proud of that. LOL

JoAnn,

I love it! I can see the ad campaign now.

JoAnn Ross. Buy your own copy. (Somebody's already stolen the ones in your library.)

I love that ad campaign!! I gotta tell you, darlin', if you ever decide to retire from this crazy writing business and go into promotion, I'll definitely hire you! LOL
