Author James Patterson Is Giving $1 Million Dollars to Bookstores

I learned through an article titled Author James Patterson Giving $1M to Bookstores from ABC News, the following information:
Best-selling author James Patterson is giving away $1 million of his own money to independent bookstores.

On Wednesday, Patterson announced the first round of 55 stores to receive over $267,000 in funds. The remaining $750,000 will be given out in stages throughout the year.
I think it is pretty cool that James Patterson is helping independent bookstores!


  1. I saw this on facebook today!! This is sooo great, we have a wonderful independent book store here in town.

    1. It is nice to see successful authors give back to independent bookstores. :-)
