This is an excellent article on the state of publishing today. A must read for authors and informative to the reader. I remember those inexpensive pocket books. My attic is still full to the brim with them!

The Wave of Publishing’s Future?

This is a unique idea.

Ever go to a bookstore looking for a specific book only to discover it’s unavailable? This happens to me on numerous occasions and has led me to shop less and less at the bookstore for what I want to read. Of course, I can order it either digitally or have them send me the book by mail. If I want a physical book badly enough I’ll wait for it, but really, in the words of Inigo Montoya, “I hate wait!”

And now, someone brilliant has come up with a way to speed things up. Read here about the way to have that book you want printed while you wait. Why not, I say? They sell espresso coffee, why not espresso books?
