Anything for a fix.
Which means that, yes, I know how to go online to my public library website in the dark of night when most people are asleep to get a couple of new reads.
It's so sweet, you should try it. Just once won't hurt you.
It was through this site that I've discovered Alison Weir and her Elizabethan Era works (good stuff) as well as some Agatha Christie short stories (this week, I'm all Miss Marple over Poirot, but that will revert by the end of the month, no doubt).
So, imagine my thrill when I open my MediaBistro news update this afternoon, and there's the headline from GalleyCat that Hachette is testing a new ebook pilot program for libraries.
More. More for me. Hands begin to involuntarily rub together ....
Consider Hachette's Author List and drool along with me:
- Steve Martin (yes, THAT Steve Martin. No "i" on the end, though I like his stuff, too.)
- Michael Connelly
- oh, heck. There's much too much to type here, go read through the Big Names for your own book-loving self.
Thank the Lord, they've come to their senses.
Now, the next big question I have: how many of their publications are going to get ebook versions? Yepper, that's the big question, isn't it?
Well, that and WHEN.
Gimme, gimme, gimme.
