There are many positive things to say about eReaders and eBooks. There are many negative things to say about ePublishing. I do prefer gatekeepers and I do see a fall in standards. I am concerned that, if a novice is confronted with an array of mediocrity, then the less-mediocre...

  I was delighted today when I found out that there is in the works a Self-Publishing Book Expo(http://www.selfpubbookexpo.com/) and even more delighted that it will be happening in Manhattan, a train ride away from my Long Island digs. I will admit that ten years earlier, I probably would have...

"Grandma, what's this?" Our grandson, precocious and brilliant, hands me a hardcover copy of Lee Child's NOTHING TO LOSE, published June 3, 2008. The pages are yellowing, the spine is cracked. The book is well-read. "That's what your granddaddy and I used to call a book, sweetheart...
