I love this idea, but without curation I don't think I would want to buy many of the books. When shopping in a bookstore, I want to trust that the books are at least edited properly. However, since the shop focuses on local books only, I can understand why they went that route.

Still, in future shops of this kind (which I hope there are!) there should at least be a shop best-seller space, or a way for shops to get feedback on books that are poorly researched and edited. Some way for there to be curation, even if it is crowd sourced.

In this interview I asked Boyle about his writing process, giving oneself permission to write, what he thinks of political fiction, and more. #writing #interviews #books #literary

The true meaning of April Fool's Day: tear down the walls of reality and step out of the rat race.
    Pop quiz: What do Burning Man, Fight Club, flash mobs, urban exploring, art cars and the Billboard Liberation Front have in common? All of them were born of the  pranksters known as the Cacophony Society. They started in San Francisco, 1986 and expanded to have chapters in Detroit,…

A little context here would be nice. What makes this a flash mom? I mean, did the kids know this was going to happen? How much planning went into it? How were the kids chosen to be part of the flash mob? How good were they at keeping it a secret? Alas, no description was provided.

I've not tried any of these, but they all look terrific. Sharing this with you maybe will help me remember to try these out later. #blogging  
Ever wondered how you can create your own animated videos. Attention grabbing and convincing videos can be yours with one of these online animation tools.

Putting a lot of thought into the sweepstakes we have going up soon.
Everyone loves getting something for free. In fact, one of the main reasons that people "Like" a brands Facebook page is so that they can either obtain a discount or win something.The rise of social media allows businesses to easily create their own contests and giveaways that can build links to your website, increase traffic and create social engagement.

My interview with YA author Corina Vacco.
Before the interview I must disclose that I know Corina Vacco from a writers group in Berkeley. But please don’t think this is a situation where I’m eager to share the writing of a friend. No! It’s quite the opposite: from my first exposure to her prose I determined to…

So wild how we take for granted resources on the www, and then one day they just close up shop. Today's case in point: Technorati! I just realized their blog search is no more. Here's a link on some alternatives. #blogging #bloggingtips

Often I see people have trouble with the way their thumbnail images are cropped in #Wordpress. Both ways have advantages and disadvantages. Here's a quick post that nicely explains them both.
