I am in a quandary and need your opinion. So many of my author friends order bookmarks to give out at signings and such, but I haven't. My publisher gave me bookmarks when I first published and whenever I did signings I handed them out. But now that I'm independently published, I'm wondering if it's worth the expense. I mean, I occasionally do booksignings, I speak at conferences and such, but do I really need bookmarks for people to remember me by?
For me, when I receive bookmarks from people I set them in a drawer at home and use them when I'm in a bind, but I have a Kindle so I don't use them a whole lot and I generally don't look at them for info. So here's what I want to know:
Do you actually look at and potentially purchase books from info on a bookmark? Do you think bookmarks are worth the money with all the ereaders nowadays?
