There was some drama in author world this week. Okay, there’s usually drama in author world. We have BIG imaginations and care passionately about our business. But I’m not in Kindle Unlimited (Amazon’s book subscription service), the review drama makes me tired (what I feel when I run into something I have no control over), and then there was news about the other subscription service Scribd, who just booted about 80% of their romance titles because romance readers read too fast and too much.
So far my books haven’t been booted (UPDATE: oh yes they have, all but two of my freebies), but I keep checking because it takes a while to delist that many books. Or so I’d think. And this change doesn’t just impact me, but will affect romance readers.
So, I’m curious about where readers—even non-romance readers—find/buy books? Do you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, Scribd, or Oyster (my books are in the last two, but you have to be exclusive for KU, so not there)? Or are you into the single purchase model? A book hoarder? Only read freebies or find your books in libraries? Have a favorite bookstore? Are you all about print? Digital? Audio? A mix? Is your TBR (to be read) pile manageable, out of control, or somewhere in between?
I know, demanding a lot this week, but BOOKS. You know I love them and love talking about them. And you know I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value). Recipient is announced the first blog post of the new month.
P.S. Because it was romance books that got booted, you know I have to feature The Last Enemy, my book about a romance writer trying to stay alive (and getting seriously under estimated by the lawman and the bad guy). And it’s FREE.
