One of them was from a company in Germany that is printing Finale Prüfungstraining, Zentralabitur 2012 Englisch NRW, and which includes a two page excerpt from the book in it. I figure this is because the same excerpt was used in the exam a few years ago, which was a strange story to hear, but which allowed me to go and give a speech about how I enjoyed the idea of German's being made to read my work. I never know what to ask for a few pages reprinted like that, so I don't stress it. If I was being honest, I steal enough material off the net and out of books for my own education purposes that I figure fair is fair. Maybe I'm wrong in that, but I'm cool with it if I am. Besides, these few pages get reprinted in a print run the book never saw, and a whole bunch of kids read it and hate it in that way that students hate all their education texts--much in the way children hate peas and carrots and their parents music--and that makes me more than happy.
It's funny how a book can keep alive, though. Like you got no say in it either way.
