Hi! Just A Couple of Things...And All The Latest Tablet Info

  • Check out my sweet interview with Julie Wilson at the CBC Book Club. When I read The Tipping Pointback in the day, I often wondered who these so called 'connectors' were, the people who supposedly link up our world and spread ideas. Julie is a quintessential connector and so an essential part of the Canadian book community - she is responsible for a hefty portion of the idea-sharing and stirring of creative pots that goes on! Many kudos to her.
  • I am brain storming a mini-series on dudes who read books marketed to women. Why? Yesterday, my review of The Time Traveler's Wife generated discussion as I labeled it 'women's fiction'. NO! many (female) commenters protested! I know dudes who like that book! Well dudes, this is your chance to come out of the wood work and be interviewed by moi as to your reading predilections. Email me and submit to my questions!
  • Heavy breathing over the Apple tablet is all over the internets. Dustin Curtis says he has photos of the real deal, Gizmodo says the beast will cost well under $1000 and that not a lot of e-books will be available for it until mid-2010. Stay glued to your computers at 10am Pacific time tomorrow (Wednesday, January 27th) for the official announcement. Since Steve Jobs has been quoted to say that the tablet is "the most important thing I've ever done" you'd better believe this announcement will be nuclear-strength awesome. Check out Gizmodo's live blog tomorrow for all the details.
