Category: drawing the line

Another Facebook First…

Just when I think I’ve seen it all, something else pops up.

An author on facebook asked his “fans and supporters” to change their profile pics to the cover of his new book release.

Mabey I have it all wrong, but I think that is a bit presumptuous. I love certain books. I have read every Anne Tyler book there is. BUT her book covers are not going to be my profile pic.

I am all for promotion and always willing to lend a hand to someone else. But some things just cross that invisible line. And asking facebook friends to change their profile pics to one of my book covers would be where the line is drawn.

Like I said, maybe I’m wrong about this. But I do think if one person takes it the wrong way, so will others.
