The E-Book:  A Catalyst to Anonymous Reading, by Holly Reynolds
As any readers of this blog have probably realized by now, I love my e-reader. It’s a tablet as well as a reader, so I often have phases where I either use it to browse social media and play games or as a reader alone. As a reader, Kip (my Kindle) is unbeatable. Buying books […]
FREEBIES are destroying publishing, by Nikki Tetreault
