Kottke (and Buzzfeed! and the New York Times!) on virtual book tours, which would have been the more appropriate option for the guy hawking his September 11 historical fiction / conspiracy theory tome at McCarran Interational Airport in Las Vegas last week. He was walking up to people and handing out these glossy bookmarks that must have cost him a buck a pop, the poor guy.
