I think I'm in a reading rut. I haven't finished a book since last week and that was an audiobook. It's not that I'm not reading good books, it's just that I can't concentrate. Ever have that happen?
Hopefully I'll get a lot read this weekend. We're getting a mix of snow and rain tonight. Not a nice weekend to leave the house.
So what's new out there?
*Big news: Book bloggers count for 12.1% of the ways people find out about books they buy.
*Trish (Hey Lady!) and Michelle (Galleysmith) founders of the Book Bloggers Convention have sold it to BEA. I wonder if that will change much about BBC, not that I've ever gone to know...
*Vladimir Putin tents fingers and gives a Mr Burns glare, also he wants to make Russians read 100 books of his choosing.
*Maurice Sendak and Stephen Colbert face off on The Colbert Report. Aw, he's so grumpy.
*Now you can pretend to be a librarian with all the right tools!
*As of January 30, Goodreads will no longer use Amazon's data. The reason is terms are too restrictive.
*Amanda Hocking gets herself a book deal and it's not with Amazon. I'm impressed at how business-like she is. Good for her!
*Okay, so there was bad news about OverDrive the last couple of weeks, now here's some good news!
*Want to put words on your feet? Reading material for the shy? See Kate Sew shows you how.
*Etsy Love: You got words on your feet, how about your ears? Whisky Girl earrings from A Spectacular Mess.
Have a good one!
