Just One Book campaign for Salt

You've probably seen this already elsewhere, but if you haven't, please read the following and act on it, to help save one of the world's most exciting independent literary publishers:

A message from Chris Hamilton-Emery, Salt's director:

"Here's how you can help us to save Salt.


1. Please buy just one book, right now. We don't mind from where, you can buy it from us or from Amazon, your local shop or megastore, online or offline. If you buy just one book now, you'll help to save Salt. Timing is absolutely everything here. We need cash now to stay afloat. If you love literature, help keep it alive. All it takes is just one book sale. Go to our online store and help us keep going.

Salt UK and International Store

Salt USA Store

2. Share this note on your Facebook and MySpace profile [and on your blogs]. Tell your friends. If we can spread the word about our cash crisis, we can hopefully find more sales and save our literary publishing. Remember it's just one book, that's all it takes to save us. Please do it now.

With my best wishes to everyone

I'm calling in at a certain well-known bookshop this afternoon to buy a copy of Katy Evans-Bush's Me and the Dead; and then I was reminded this morning about David Gaffney's Sawn-Off Tales, which are by all accounts brilliant, so I've ordered that too. Buy books and do good at the same time - what could be nicer?
