Like me, I'm sure that many of you have bought books at discount prices, buy one get one free promotions and/or charity shops - how many times have I written about the 'bargain' that I got at the library?
Have you ever stopped to think about the effect this has on the author and publishers? If I'm being totally honest, me neither. Leigh Russell, blogger and author of CUT SHORT wrote a really interesting article entitled 'Lemmings' on her blog CRIME FICTION which looks at just this subject. Now, I'm not saying I'll never step foot in a charity shop again or buy that cut price book but it will certainly make me think. Why not visit Leigh, I'm sure she will be delighted to hear your views, just as I will be .
