You all know that I haven't been very kind to James Patterson in previous posts. Well, that all changes now. Patterson is giving away a total of $1M to independent bookstores across the country. The locals that are receiving grants are:
Bookshop Santa Cruz
Book Passage, Corte Madera
Hicklebee's, San Jose
In addition to that, he is supporting California Bookstore Day, which is May 3 and which features 93 bookstores. If you want more information about that, go to cabookstoreday.com.
So, having said all that, here's a link to the article which explains what Patterson is doing. This is very cool.
