International ‘Please Don’t Pirate My Book’ Day

Apparently, today is International ‘Please Don’t Pirate My Book’ Day. Or maybe it was yesterday? Anyway, you already know what I think about people who illegally download copies of my books instead of buying the books or borrowing them from a library (and, for that matter, what I think of the term ‘piracy’ to describe this behaviour), but Seanan McGuire has just written a very good blog post about the issue, which you might find interesting.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to those of you who do buy books. You’re awesome.

  1. Speaking of, I just bought the audio book of A Brief History! And even though I’ve read it twice, I still can’t wait to listen to it! 🙂

    1. Oh, thank you, Dayln! You are officially awesome.

      I really like Emma Bering’s narration of the books – she does such a good job with all the voices (especially Aunt Charlotte, who sounds just like the Queen Mum). One listener did think Simon sounded too Cockney, though, and I agree he’d actually try to sound as posh as possible – but then, if the narrator had given him an aristocratic accent, I suppose it would’ve been hard to distinguish his voice from Toby’s.
