Books for Botox – A New Holiday Tradition

November 12th, 2007  |  Published in Libraries and Exhibits  |  2 Comments

I am not making this up. A plastic surgery clinic is offering botox in exchange for books. This ad ran in today's (November 12) San Francisco Chronicle.
Botox

The Maas Clinic even has a great domain name, www.booksforbotox.com, and a snappy slogan, "Looks for Books"! With all the books I have, I could have a second career as a model after visiting Dr. Maas, except I think I'd rather have the books than the looks (I wonder, though, what my wife would say about that).

This is the second year the Maas Clinic – with offices in Truckee (near Lake Tahoe) and San Francisco – has done this promotion. Last year, they reported that "With all the skin care, cosmetics and Botox treatments that were doled out [as a result of Books for Botox], everyone looks like they’re STILL on holiday!" Now that's what I call the Christmas spirit.

However, if you really want to help kids and libraries, donate money. That way they can buy the exact books they need. They don't really want your stack of ratty Harry Potters.

    What an interesting and creative idea. I think these people are doing a good thing. Botox has a bad reputation in some circles – this is good PR. I do believe however, that anyone seeking Botox injections should investigate the side effects of botox injections.
