For all publishers on all technical subjects, physical book sales at the cash register have plummeted the during 2014 and 2015. You will notice that last year only one week surpassed the same week from the prior year. And this year, not one single week has been ahead of last year. This is a market still looking for bottom. The fortunate news for a few publishers is that direct and digital sales are off-setting the lose of print sales.

I'm really surprised nobody is commenting on the deeper problem with this stamp. Where's the outrage for the egregious comma splice?!
The celebrated poet wrote many quotable lines, but not the one featured on a newly issued stamp in her honor.

Can you spot it? This is exactly the sort of thing I just talked to my chess club kids this week about how much it drives me crazy.

Not sure how useful it is for actual survival, but happy to have my bookbinding article included in this collection.

Rereading To Kill a Mockingbird before the release of Go Set a Watchman (no spoilers, please!) and it must be a very recent printing.

Today on +Science Friday+Jeff Potter  (author of Cooking for Geeks) reveals the secret to perfectly peeled hard-cooked eggs.
There’s a better way to make hard-boiled eggs—and it doesn’t involve boiling.

Shoveled the walkway less than three hours ago, and now it looks like this. And no, that isn't a hedge or anything lining the path. It's just a big wall of snow.
