PostSubject: Famous Readers   Fri Dec 19, 2008 7:55 pm

Is someone famous reading your book? Wouldn't you like to know? We have all seen or heard when someone famous mentions that they were reading a certain book and the sales soar. That famous person had also read other books, but they mentioned what they were reading at the time they were asked.

Who thinks someone famous has read their book.

Someone like Oprah, maybe? God, I wish...

My first choice would be Whoopie Goldberg though. She is the
personification of my character, Keechie. If she said, "I want to play
this role in my next movie - I would be on my way!

Would you consider the mayor of a small town in Georgia famous? He
hasn't made a public statement to the fact, but he did read my book...

The most famous person was probably Wisconsin Senator Feingold's ex-wife. She wrote an article about my brother for the Madison Magazine when he had lung cancer, and then attended a golf outing he had every year to raise money for lung cancer research. He raffled off prizes, and she won one of my books and also bought one.

My answer is no, but a letter to the editor did result in receiving one from Senator Sherrod Brown. Hardly the same thing.
