The Revolving Review Copy

adderall-cover21.jpgSitting on a few extra advance reader copies of “The Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism, and Murder,” author Stephen Elliott has decided to create a reading chain with his spare copies.

The author plans to pass review copies from reader to reader until the book is published in September. Interested readers should email Elliott at adderall [at] therumpus [dot] net. Earlier this year, GalleyCat interviewed the author about his new site, The Rumpus.

Here’s more from the post: “I might send you an advance copy (I also might not, we’ll have to see how this goes, I’ve only got a couple). Here’s the hitch, if I mail you a book I’ll also email you the address of the next person to send it to. You have a week to read it, then you have to send your copy to the next address. First class postage is $3.04. So this is not totally free.”
