Today’s links of interest:

  • LBC Podcast #3: Gina Frangello
    Ed gets the goods straight from Gina Frangello, with a very little help from yours truly. We suggest fast forwarding through our attempts to form sentences and heading straight to Gina’s surely more coherent thoughts.
  • Blackwell Publishing to digitise over 500 journals
    Excellent, excellent. Now for everybody else? Don’t be late to the party.
  • Frey Acknowledges Fabrications in Sequel
    Of interest only to those who still have the energy to care.
  • A virtual revolution
    A breathless, excited look at the future of electronic books. And for those of you who still doubt, the revolution is happening under your nose. In other news, our so-not-tech-savvy mother-in-law just bought an ebook because it had what she needed at the price she wanted to pay.
  • Oak Hill Capital Partners Acquires Alibris
    All this long tail this, long tail that — when money goes into the used book market at this level, you know the world’s a-changin’
  • Waterstone’s to launch new online service
    For those following the Waterstone’s saga (and, really, if you’re not, shame on you…it’s like a soap opera with less Botox. Presumably less Botox), the bookseller is going to look online to save its soul. While Powell’s proves it can be done, we think this isn’t such a hot idea.
  • Banville’s waves
    John Banville won one for art…conveniently forgetting that art is in the eye of the beholder.
