This is the perfect opportunity to bring up something that has bugged me for a while. You (and, to be fair, some other bloggers) helpfully and conveniently post the Kindle link to books. That's great. However, you don't post the Nook link as well. Digital product - ebooks and Nooks - is one of the few money-makers over at B&N, and at least for now and until that date when physical books disappear from their stores (2018?) they are actually a big part of what keeps those physical doors of the bricks and mortar stores propped open and enable them to sell the paper product. We can (and have) discussed what is wrong with B&N, but arguably one of the things that they did right as opposed to the recently shuttered Other Chain is to get into ebooks and the devices to read them on in a big way. You might want to consider supporting B&N in their cross-subsidization of ebook product and physical books/bookstores. Especially timely with Amazon's announcement today of a tablet that will go head-to-head with B&N's marquee Color Nook.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different web page and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to going over your web page yet again.
