Happy first Monday of October!
Even with only a few posts in, the name “Places You Should Go” is retiring. From here on out, check the “As of Late” category for my link round-ups.
This article made me sigh a lot. Ebooks aren’t the end of the world, people, so the glee in their sales slipping is eye-roll worthy. I prefer ebooks for my ephemeral reading, and print for books I either want to purchase because I love it or read because it’s what the public library has available. But according to some folks, this NYT article is a little off-base…
Preach, dude. What do pubs expect when the price point of an ebook goes from 9.99 to 12.99? I could get a paperback for that price, let alone an Amazon-discounted hardback. I’m still having trouble breaking away from the mentality that the price is for the content, not the carrier, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. There’s also some discussion in here about market fluctuations don’t necessarily predict the outcome.
I’ve just started Gold Fame Citrus and trying to savor it s l o w l y. It can’t be said enough: CVW is such, such a good writer.
And finally, an older article that’s a primer on feminist sci fi. Embarrassingly enough, I haven’t read too much sci fi, but these books sound like great places to start.
Stay tuned for a review of Casey Gray’s Discount coming later this week!
