Someone on YouTube packaged the books with a card saying "Please take me" and explaining what it was about. They then left them in public places like the bus, train, park benches etc. I thought it was quite a cool way of doing it.

well, the first ten went rather well: but these were not total strangers, just some people that I had seen but did not know, or people that I know. It was easier than I thought, though, so for the other ten I decided it had to be people I did not know at all. So i did procrastinate for a while, and in the end I confess I chickened out, and put them with a note in their mailboxes!

Wow, twenty books to distribute! That's quite a lot! I wouldn't have the courage either to give them to total strangers.

I live in a fairly small town, with the nearest bookstores being 20 miles away in one direction, and maybe 17 in the other (both B&N). We have a small library. I'm tempted to sign up to apply to be a distributor: I'd set up a booth in our small downtown area, with a sign saying "free books". We also have a small nursing home that might like copies.

I suppose it all depends on which books are selected.

I heard that, in Pittsburgh, one person had problems giving away copies of Good Omens, because it had the word "witch" in the title.
