Changed by Books

Author Kris Reisz is looking for some opinions on a project he's contemplating -- and I'll quote here -- "I want to start a website where people can send in anecdotes about books, stories, poems, etc. that helped them somehow, whether they gave them the courage to ask the pretty girl out or maybe served as an escape during a rough patch in their lives."

Since this is the kind of thing you guys tell me in comments during giveaways here at PBW, I thought I'd ask if you'd head over to his LJ to read the post and (if you're inclined) offer him some thoughts on the subject.

I've never found a site devoted to this kind of content, so I think the idea is very cool. I imagine keeping out the marketing people, trolls and self-promo sluts would be something of a challenge, and it would probably have to be closely moderated to boot out the trolls looking to pick fights, but even so, I think it's a lovely concept.

  1. Thanks for the plug.

    After reading the responses, I've decided to go ahead and give it a whirl. I've already talked to an artist friend of mine about doing some artwork for it, and hopefully, we'll be up and running soon.

  2. For some reason I wasn't able to comment on his LJ post (Dunno why, I have an LJ login and everything) but I think it's a wonderful, wonderful idea.
