I just read a Tweet from Melville House Publishing that linked to an article, which said every time I receive a book and blog about it I have to disclose where it came from. I researched a bit more and after going through the Washington Post, found the FTC guidelines for the change. Apparently we could start a used book store with our swag, and we take in upwards of 20 to 50 books a week…? Not I, I usually accept 20 books a freaking year, and then they are normally ARC and those cannot be sold. So no FTC I cannot start an effing bookstore, and by the publishers sending me a freaking galley that does NOT in any way mean I am endorsed by them and that I will give them a good review.
I am thinking about closing up shop here. I am kinda lazy and remembering to write where I get each book is kinda bogus. It’s going to take some thinking, and when does this start? I know I do not have to back log but when do I have to start writing I got this book from so and so effin eat it FTC…?
When and how are you going to deal with this?
