"Before we begin, in the interest of full disclosure...."You guys are so cute. All that bending over backward just because you received a review copy of a book? It's endearing — I really mean that — but hardly necessary. Every book, movie, music album, video game, etc. that gets reviewed anywhere involves someone getting a review copy. It's not a conflict of interest. I used to write/edit for a small local print publication, and our office received, I dunno, 50-60 free books a week. It's not a big deal guys, really. Ebert gets to see lots of free movies; that doesn't mean the studios expect him to only write positive reviews. (They hope, certainly, but that's neither here nor there.)I'm just sad you guys have to give away your meager press perks. :(

It doesn't sound like he'd really want to keep it.
