Wednesday News: The Hobbit as scientific subject, Twilight tries to nix...

“Nearly a quarter of the titles on the lists were published by independent authors. (What’s even more interesting is that 2 authors, Morgan Rice and Abbi Glines, took 6 spots on the YA list all by themselves.) That’s more than some of the major publishers can claim, but more importantly it’s more than Amazon can claim.” The Digital Reader

“Batten also added that the company have partnered with major publishers, including Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, HarperCollins Christian, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. As such, subscribers will have access to over 100,000 professionally-published titles from authors like Stephen King, Dan Brown, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Michael Crichton, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, among others, the report said.” Venture Capital Post

Just a note from Jane. You may notice that the Edit Comments feature has been turned off. We are running into resource problem. WP Engine has informed us that our back end hits are really really high. I have no idea what that means but one of the things that they suggested is that we turn off unnecessary plugins. We’ve had problems with the edit comments plugin before so I’m turning it off for some testing.

isn't sure if she's an average Romance reader, or even an average reader, but a reader she is, enjoying everything from literary fiction to philosophy to history to poetry. Historical Romance was her first love within the genre, but she's fickle and easily seduced by the promise of a good read. She approaches every book with the same hope: that she will be filled from the inside out with something awesome that she didnʼt know, didnʼt think about, or didnʼt feel until that moment. And she's always looking for the next mind-blowing read, so feel free to share any suggestions!

    I don’t get the attraction of Entitle at all. They are offering 2 ebooks for $14.99. Which is a whole lot more than I ever pay for 2 ebooks at any other retailer. It seems to be basically a ‘discount’ retailer, with not great discounts and a required minimum purchase. I can’t see who is going to sign up for that.
