All you have to do to enter is either comment at the group or retweet our daily giveaway announcements. If you’re not yet a Cafe member, we hope you’ll join us and connect with ...more
Digimonkey loves to travel. It’s a big, beautiful world out there and she wants to see it all! Travel is just plain fun, and many people who live outside the United States enjoy traveling to the All Romance/OmniLit site to purchase their ebooks, and that’s equally wonderful. Digi never knows when she’s going to be helping someone who’s halfway across the globe. Now that’s cool!
However, Digi needs those who live outside the United States to come a little closer so they can hear what she ...more
We’d like to wish our friends in the US a happy Labor Day weekend. If you have Monday off, we hope you enjoy the time with your families. There’s plenty to read here if you find yourself wanting something to do.
Otherwise, it’s been a rather eventful week in publishing, print and digital:
We’re getting closer to the beginning of school – in fact, we’re seeing via a number of Twitter accounts that some kids are already back in class. Whether you’ve managed to get the kidlets on the bus or have to wait a few weeks, know that we’re here to help replenish your TBR stacks. Round three of the ARe Hottest Heroes contest is in full swing, and you can pick up all eight titles right here if you want to read before you ...more
Are you ready for the new Kindle Fire? If rumors prove true, we may not have to wait much longer. Reports of the new readers from Amazon.com have a launch date as early as the end of the month. Talk varies between the addition of a 10-inch screen to the Kindle family in addition to an updated 7-inch version. We shall see is Christmas indeed happens in July.
Elsewhere in the publishing world:
Amazon.com is rarely not making news, but this week they’ve been rather busy. Not only has the company put in a bid to acquire Dorchester Publishing, but two new Kindle Fire tablets are purportedly in the works – one with a 10-inch screen. The new readers may help Amazon continue tracking what readers are reading and how often.
Book Expo America has come and gone, and if you missed it, it appears this year left many hopeful for the future of publishing. Personally, I found the Twitter talk about the accompanying Book Blogger Con quite interesting. You can search the hashtag #beabloggercon and catch up on various updates from attendees.
Elsewhere in publishing of recent note:
Hope everybody had a great weeks. We celebrated highs (an awesome solar eclipse on the West Coast) and lows (losing 70s music greats Donna Summer and Robin Gibb), but as life moves forward we’ll see what this week brings.
Over here, we’re looking forward to a three-day pass with Memorial Day coming up – it’s nice to have a free day to read more. If science fiction is your genre, definitely check out the winners of the 2011 Nebula Awards, recently announced by the ...more
