Here’s my pet peeve: being sent books I didn’t ask for.
If you are an author, don?t send me a copy of your book unsolicited in the mail. Ask me for permission first.
My office is overflowing with business books authors have sent me ? books I will never have time to read but hate to throw out, thereby resulting in annoying clutter. (You should see the place!) One author sent me 2 copies of his book after I asked him not to.
If I agree to review your book and it is an e-book, don?t e-mail me a PDF; send me a hard copy print-out in the mail. I don?t want to consume my paper and ink printing out your book.
