from here.

If someone you know has just published a book—do you feel obliged to buy a copy? Even if it’s not the kind of book you’d normally read?

someone i know did publish a book recently. i wasn’t very close to the person, but i did feel obligated to buy a copy, especially when she came around and showed us her book and told us how much it cost. i told her i’d buy a copy, that i just needed to get money first, but although i saw her several times after that, i forgot to give her the money, so i ended up never buying the book. i did feel awfully obligated to go ahead and purchase it, though.
