  1. I find the first article you link to really troubling. Bad enough that the bookstore are being consumed and steamrolled amzn- now the publishers are turning into one homogenous mass? sad sad sad and it will make me haunt used bookstores all the more for the older, more interesting unique titles I’m happy to blow the dust off them

    1. I agree! Media consolidation does no favors for readers or writers. I hate that consolidation makes publishers ever more cautious about taking risks. One would think that, with the amount of money they have to throw around, they would take more chances. Alas.

      Thankfully, there are independent publishers still around and, like you said, bookstores full of the world’s backlog of books for us.
