Sophie and I were thinking today that, since blogging naturally tends towards solipsism, Do You Read Me? has become rather one-sided lately. Much as we love to be paid to chatter away here, we really think we’d like to hear from you for a change. So we’d like you to
write something for us!
Your contributions to the ABC Blog will be richly rewarded with ABC Gift Vouchers and heapings of kudos from the Best Bookstore in the World. (No, sorry, we’re not done crowing about that yet!)
What we’d like you to send us:
Give us a top five list o your choice of theme. How about: Top Five Books to Read After a Break-Up; Books That Made You Love Reading; Desert Island Books; Books to Make You Think; Best Manga Volumes Ever; Sexiest Books Ever; Books That Changed Your Life; Books To Cheer You Up; Top Five Things You’ve Bought at The ABC that aren’t Books…. or any theme you like. Write a sentence or two about each of your choices.
Write on any subject as long as you can link it to books or other products we sell. We’re looking for words to move us, entertain us, make us laugh, intrigue us or fascinate us. If you’re passionate about it, write about it; we might just post it and pay you for it too!
What music do you think would belong on the perfect bookstore soundtrack? Share your love of music and blog about it for us. You can pick a mix of albums or songs, or write about one album that you think is perfect for browsing books to. If we use your submission, we’ll send you an ABC gift voucher!
Shelf Obsession Nominations
It’s a well-known fact that people who love books love to snoop around other people’s bookshelves. If you want to show off your bookshelves for our Shelf Obsession section, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo or photos of your shelves. (Make the format as large as you can please so we can really see your books!) We’ll get back to you with a list of nosey questions.
Edited on 3/7/2014: please mail email@example.com instead. And yes, we would still love these kinds of contributions from you!
