I get an average of probably 10-15 offers for free products in my email inbox every day. I am one of Amazon’s top reviewers, so people send products to me to review. Fairly often I get an offer to review a book. Usually I pass because, as much as I love to read, there are more books I am interested in than I will ever be able to get to. My queue is constantly full.
Yesterday I received an offer to read a book titled “They Serve Bagels In Heaven”. I had never heard of it. It was offered to me because I reviewed “The Afterlife of Billy Fingers” I’m not sure if the person promoting the book noticed I hated “The Afterlife of Billy Fingers”. I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to review it or not. I’m still about four books down- books I have bought and haven’t even started. I told them if they could send a Kindle version I’d read it.
Last week I ran out of Podcasts, so this week I started a new one. As I glanced through the available episodes I thought I saw “They Serve Bagels In Heaven” in the title of one of the episodes. I thought I must have someone gotten a glance of the email. It was just a flash, I barely perceived it, but I started scrolling back through the titles and there it was. The author of “They Serve Bagels In Heaven” had done a two part interview on this Podcast.
When I got back home, in my inbox was a gift of the Kindle version of the book.I guess I’m supposed to read it.
