No more review copies for the Brooklyn Rail.
I get that most review copies won't be reviewed.
For each NTB title I send out over 50 review copies and am thrilled to receive 2 or 3 reviews.
I get that publications can't hold on to a bunch of books they don't intend on reviewing.
I get that times are tough and publications need to earn money.
I'm aware that some magazines sell review copies sent to them.
But if you're going to sell review copies, how about a little discretion? Do you really have to use the magazine's name as your Amazon store name?
Is that good pr?
And those prices aren't much cheaper than retail. $15.85 for a $16.99 (retail) book? For something you got for free?
Besides, you make up the $1 discount with the $3.99 shipping.
Why not price them to move?
Why come off like such dicks?
