Busy month for me — link-wise and other: bought a house, sold my house, working at the Day Job, book releases, and LINKS: Lots O’ Links!
* Do you read best sellers on your e-thing? I tend to read just about anything BUT a best seller, but hey, that’s me…
* Another blithe dismissal of romance and women’s fiction in a very offhand, off way: why plagarize chick lit? Why not go for the ‘good stuff’? ::shaking head::
* A new debate on an old topic: are publishers irrelevant? Glad to see someone mentioned textbooks and other types of publishing, finally.
* How cool is this? An interactive way to navigate through Victorian settings?
* A thoughtful essay on things to consider before jumping on the self-pub bandwagon. Yes, you need thick skin, for sure.
* This one made me think about stereotyping in books, as well. Interesting.
* All about authors who promise and then take… a … long… time… to… deliver.
* I knew about flag disposal, but holy book disposal? News to me!
* This is a good example of something bad that went viral. Authors: just smile when you get a review whether you agree with it or not. It’s better that way.
* This reminded me a bit of Terminator: are our gadgets getting too smart for us?
* How words and their meanings change over time. Are you disinterested?
* I confess I don’t remember any favorite childhood book. Perhaps it’s just as well I don’t?
* A post that has links to all you ever wanted to know (or didn’t want to know) about the Tempest in a Three Cup controversy.
* I liked this: a look at how we ‘cull’ out what to spend our time on — and yes, we probably will miss just about everything.
* And for you procrastinators, out there: a slide show of odd roadside attractions!
