My local B&N has a kiosk set up just inside the door where they are demoing the Nook. I watch the booksellers push the nook and it's special features. You can read at night. You can instantly download books, magazines, newspapers... And I wonder if they realize they are selling their replacement? After all, if all books go electronic as many doomsayers are predicting, there won't be a need for bookstores anymore, much less the bookseller. And that makes me sad. I will miss being able to browse books, hang out in the cafe, and write. Where will I write my electronic book if I lose my beloved B&N?
Best books recently read:
The Girl Who Chase The Moon by Sarah Addison Allen, my favorite author
The Girl She Used To Be by David Cristofano. You had me at Witsec.
How to Knit a Love Song by Racheal Herron. A new author I'll definitely be waiting for.
Last week I posted my blog and received 0 comments. Nada. Zilch. Zip. It was very disheartening. Number one, did anyone read it? Number two, did nobody like it?
I realized one of the reasons we enjoy blogging is that instant gratification we get with the comments. Good or bad comments, at least we made someone think, feel, and react. I felt a little like Bix, "If you write a blog and nobody reads it, is it still a blog?"
Must see tv: Glee. I am a total Gleek and proud of it. Run, Joey, Run. Nuff said.
Bixby count: 19,200 words. And hope to hit 20 by the end of the day.
I'm a third of the way to my projected word count and only on Bixby's third day. I wonder if that's going to be a problem?
