Binge Readers are Getting Rewarded

I’m sure you’ve heard of binge watching and the insane amount of interest it’s getting from the TV industry, leading to whole series being released at once so we can all satisfy our need to know everything in one hungover day of marathoning.

Should We Save Indie Bookstores?

Amazon, big chains (looking at you, B&N), and e-books are wreaking havoc on […]
