From Book to Blurb

  This month, I’d like to pay homage to Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass.  I love his wit and wordplay more than is healthy.

It’s Read an eBook Week!

According to Smashwords, it’s “Read an eBook Week”. My first reaction to learning this was wholly cynical: “Um, what won’t they do to promote their products?”  We all know about the commercialized holiday fad which is becoming increasingly less of a fad and more of a cultural practice.  Ugh.
