The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Strange how two allegedly similar media sectors can have such divergent business outlooks. Some say market pressures in this electronic age are forcing big changes in the old-fashioned book biz.

I take this with a heavy grain of salt (rock salt, perhaps?). Cataclysmic changes in book publishing have been predicted for half a century at least, and they've yet to come to pass. Books are probably always going to be around in some form.

I've always wanted to break into book publishing, as an editor or somesuch. Of course, the Tampa Bay area isn't exactly the place to make that happen.
