Pay attention: we are about to dip our toes into the water of the mighty Sincere. We think Random House is moving in the right direction with its investment in Vocel. Yes, you read it right.

They also, correctly, note that novel reading on a cell phone screen leaves a lot to be desired. And they note the medium has potential. As we sit here, wondering if it will ever stop raining again and drinking coffee (the breakfast of champions), ideas are forming faster than we can capture them…
