Apparently Bristol Palin is a little bit desperate for people to show up to her book signings. Last week, in an ad posted on Craigslist, organizers offered free autographed copies of Palin's recent book to the first 100 people who promised to attend a weekend signing in Washington, DC, the Post reports—noting that Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far got trashed by reviewers and failed to become popular after it was released last year. The Post adds that even DC's right-leaning Examiner called the Craigslist ad "an attempt to entice fans to attend the event." (More Bristol Palin book stories.)
