Freebies

David Bernstein feels he doesn’t have enough to read:

I find it a bit odd that I’ve been blogging for the VC for almost a year but have not made it on to any publisher’s review copy lists … a smart university press (or even trade press) would put me on their list for review copies of law books, or at least some subset of law books. … I just find it interesting that book publishers have been so slow to recognize a new medium through which they can publicize their wares.

As it happens, we have almost been drowned by blog-based publicity for books. The only thing is it somehow or other always seemed to be promoting the same book.
