Weird Book Request

I recently got a comment from a guy (wont give his name) saying he noticed that I was into memoirs (I'm not) and have I read this great book (will be nice and leave that out too)? It sounded like a fellow reader who greatly enjoyed a book and wanted me to enjoy it too. When I clicked on the link I discovered this person was the author and I felt misled. This made me not want to read it at all. I felt the deception was wrong. In fact I probably would have been more likely to read it if he was more upfront and just said, "hey, I wrote this book and am trying to get the word out. Would you be interested in a book like this?"

Has anyone else had this experience?
