One way to increase your book sales

I received this email from the Richard Dawkins foundation today. Its certainly a novel way to try and increase your book sales.

January 25, 2007

Dear Readers,

A pledge has been organized by J Christie to send copies of The God Delusion to all MPs. Please see below.

"I will Arrange my MP to receive a copy of Richard Dawkins' book "The God Delusion" but only if 645 other people (one per UK constituency) will do the same for other MPs."

— J Christie

Deadline to sign up by: 31st March 2007

Country: United Kingdom

More details
The head of the UK Catholic Church has today (23 January 2007) has asked the UK parliament to exempt Catholic adoption agencies from being forced to consider equally, applications from homosexual couples.

I do not believe the church should be given special status. Catholics, like everyone else in the country, should play by the rules. Faith should not exempt one from being guilty of discrimination.

Richard Dawkins, as Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University, is best placed to make this argument, and his book "The God Delusion" (costing 11 pounds online) does it convincingly.

I will buy a copy, and have it delivered to my own MP. Should this pledge gain momentum, I additionally undertake to maintain a simple online list of MP's (and their addresses) for whom pledges have been received, to eliminate duplication of effort.
