For the moment, however, I’m taking Our Alex’s advice to put it aside for at least a week, after which I’m going to print out her blog post on re-writing, tape it up above my desk, and get back to work.
Ready? Let’s begin:
- Why are people mad at Jonathan Franzen this time?
- Apparently, the Wylie Agency and Random House have “struck a truce”. I didn’t even know they were at war. Can someone fill me in on this? Who should I have been pulling for?
- So, this new Kindle. Why is it only 139 bucks? Is it because you can only download stuff if you’re in a WiFi hotspot? This wouldn’t really be a problem for me, even living in the sticks like I do, but is there some other feature that you give up for that price that I need to know about? In your opinion, is 139 dollars the tipping point that will make the Kindle 3 as ubiquitous as the Mp3 player?
- A six year old got a multi-book contract? WTF?
Lay some wisdom on me, cats n’ kittens.
Bonus question: Was the movie version of WINTER’S BONE freakin’ awesome, or what? I mean, if Jennifer Stewart and John Hawke don’t get Oscar nominations, there is something seriously wrong with the process, am I right?
