Now I'm just pissed at the publishing industry and feel sorry for her. She seems to have been a kid that was in way over her head. How come I feel this wouldn't have happened under the eye of editors like Max Perkins or Sterling Lord? Should we be blaming Little, Brown? I am.

Hey there,
I know I'm awful because it took me about two months to finally cruise over to your blog and look around - but I finally did today and I am seriously impressed. I guess I knew about your book fetish before now, and of course, you're in publishing, so obviously you're an avid fan of literature, but I am still astounded by the sheer volume of reading you do, not to mention the variety of your reading list. Your list makes me feel like a giant slacker. But I'll definitely check back for book reviews when planning a trip to B&N. Good stuff!

It's a sad thing. I can't help but feel sorry for her.

Hoffmann - thanks for checking out the site finally. Hopefully, your big time job won't prevent you from coming back and picking up one of the recommended books. How's the coffee table book coming along?

Stefanie - I don't know what it is, but I just feel she was in over her head and the publishers failed to help her in any way. How about employing a proofreader and fact checker once in awhile.
