A U.K. paper reports that one nine year-old girl read 364 books in seven months. But does she leave Goodreads reviews? Inquiring minds want to know.
There's been a lot of chatter about author Anne Rice's petition to Amazon to compel reviewers to use their real names. Her goal is to stop author bullying via unfair reviews (wherein the reviewer has not actually read the book, or has a personal ax to grind against the author.) One problem with this idea (well argued over at Dear Author) is that authors are not required to use their real names, are they? Tricky!
Until next week,
