I did my review on "Slammed" by Colleen Hoover yesterday, which you can access it at here: Simon and Schuster has bought both of her books out, Slammed and Point of Retreat. These books WERE BOTH on the Best Seller list, and now that Simon and Schuster has bought them outright, they are gone? I know there was a lag time for the paperback to be reprinted under their format and name, but I can't see such a phenomenal book just disappear like this? Hmmm? Is it the LACK of Social Media? I know Colleen Hoover did a bang-up job of advertising these two books! I think this just MIGHT be the answer! Perhaps the big publishing houses are going to have to get MORE into Social Networking! I don't know? I can't answer this one. I CAN say to still purchase and read these! You will LOVE them!
I am SO happy to see that the NEW RELEASES ARE STAYING AT THE PRICE-POINT OF $12.99!!! VERY happy! I HOPE they continue to keep them at this FAIR price! ALL the complaining I had been doing, perhaps it worked? I "still stand in my position"! ANYTHING priced OVER $12.99 for an ebook (and actually I wait until the books DROP to $10, I REFUSE to purchase as an ebook! I will FOREVER stay at this price point no matter WHAT! I've gone over the reasons before, but once again, it''s a COMPUTER FILE! I can't touch it, I can't share it, I can't hold it! And on, and on, and on! So let's keep hoping the Publishing Houses HAVE HEARD US!!!
What are YOU reading now? PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW! I would LOVE to discuss books with you!
Until next week with the NYT Best Seller list, enjoy your week of READING!
Here' to the BOOKS!
