Lynne asked a question about connecting readers and writers. As a publisher...even or maybe especially as a very small one...this is a daily issue - trying to connect my authors with readers. There's Goodreads, Amazon and Kindle boards, and even some of the Yahoo groups. A lot of websites also attempt this...but a really good solution??? Lynne is right. it would be a valuable source.

Book industry sales numbers for July - up for the month but still down for the year, with ebooks continuing to rise and mass market continuing to fall:

And may I make a gentle reminder that this thread is for news about the industry, not personal news about books coming out or readings. I'm adding a thread for the latter, though. Please feel free to post your personal news there. Thanks!
