James Patterson  has a lot of fans and he just acquired another one.Best-selling author James Patterson is giving away $1 million of his own money to independent booksellers. The first round of 55 stores will receive  over 267-grand. The remaining money will be handed out in stages throughout the year. Patterson feels bookstores are vital to communities. He says the stores leave a lasting love of reading in children and adults. The bookstores can do whatever they want with the money.

I think it's great what he's doing and I can't wait to read this book.
