If you want your book reviewed…

Old book bindings at the Merton College library.Old_book_bindings BOOKS

This isn’t that much of a big deal, and I’ve talked about it before.

I’ve had a few very strange emails and private messages in the recent past when it comes to people with books they want reviewed.

However, a VERY strange message came the other day.

I received an email from someone I’m sure do not know, but could not recognise even if I did, because when they contacted me they used a lower-case first name (only a first name) as their username.

They attached a random file, and ordered me to read and review it.

No introduction, no information. I have no idea how they got my email address.

And… uh, no. I will not be opening that file on the grounds it might be some freaky virus!

I’m pretty sure most authors are smarter than that, but: please don’t do that!
