Folks, this is it.
When Elephant Met Giraffe is being released today, 2/4/2014.
I know many times in your life you’ve thought, “Yeah, I’d like to help my friend Paul out, but what can *I* do?”
Here is a list.
IF YOU HAVE A TON OF MONEY
Buy tons of books. As many as you can. Give them away to people. Hide them all over town. Go! Go! Go! You can also simply give me money. I’m sure that will somehow help.
IF YOU HAVE BIT OF MONEY AND GO TO ACTUAL BOOK STORES
Go to your favorite bookstore and ask for When Elephant Met Giraffe. If they have it, buy it! If they have multiple copies, consider buying them all. (See, IF YOU HAVE A TON OF MONEY, above.) If they don’t have it, ask them to order it. They’ll usually be happy and surprised that you want them to order anything rather than buying from an online bookstore.
IF YOU HAVE BIT OF MONEY AND USE ONLINE BOOK STORES
Buy When Elephant Met Giraffe.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY
Try to get When Elephant Met Giraffe from your library. Do they not have it? Ask them to get it! Does that even work?
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE WHEN ELEPHANT MET GIRAFFE
Write favorable reviews of it! Tell your friends! Buy more copies and lend them to people! Read it aloud to people on the bus! Tell all your social media folks about it! Become a school teacher and use it in your classroom! Build a fort out of books to keep the world at bay!
IF YOU ARE A WIKIPEDIA EDITOR
Make a page for me. Make a page for the book. Legitimize this endeavor as only online facts can!
I am so excited about this book and want everyone to read it. I’ll be announcing some other book-connected things soon, but for now:
BE MY UNYIELDING OMNIPOTENT STREET TEAM!
