Welcome 2009! It's a brand new year. Do you have any book or reading plans for the year? I really need to clean out my bookshelves again. They get messy so easily. I always get the organizing bug in January. How about you?
*Mavericks have been banished! Good riddance. Though I kind of like staycation.
*Ah, to be that young and carefree again. Do you want to read like a girl?
*Return of the serial novel. Dickens did it, why not Alexander McCall Smith?
*Champagne wishes and caviar dreams! Maybe not for the publishing industry anymore. Will this cost cutting save them?
*...but, hard times might mean better books. At least, this article from the UK says so.
*Oopsy! Sorry didn't mean to plagarize. That's Mr Walsch's story anyway.
*Ding-ding! It's Ellora's Cave vs Borders. Quite a David vs Goliath battle ahead for the publishing world.
*Now that I've got links all over the place, maybe I should rethink linking or maybe these guys should learn how the internet works.
Finally, a video for you, a rap about Youtube commenters. Of course, my commenters leave well written and thought out ones for me. Enjoy it anyway!
