I think like every new medium, it’s a matter of balance. Honestly, I think these devices have opened up even more opportunities for authors and writers and the entire industry. That’s not to say that I prefer the Kindle or iPad to a good ol’ fashion book. People need to remember that you can’t take those electronic devices on the beach or in the tub with you…well, I mean you could. But, it’s a hazard, or course. So, it’s about reaching a new audience and then balanacing resources. I’ll have more to say on balance later tonight. Stay tuned.

    You drop ’em in a clear ziploc gallon size baggie and bubble up to your heart’s content. Where else could I catch up in peace and quiet? Having a lock on the door helps too.

    I am an unabashed gadget lover. That and I am so overloaded with books it isn’t funny. I’m not going to stop reading, and I really do want to give the hard-earned moolah to the authors, so electronic is something I hope soars. I don’t want physical books to go away; I want choice.
