While you are pouring your beverage of choice this Friday morning, check out the stories I have for you. To start, Book Riot asks questions about the Goodreads gender study, and later DigiDay takes a look at how some US web publishers localize their UK sites, and finally JA Konrath closes out the list with his latest post on everything (and the kitchen sink)that is wrong in publishing this week.
And don't forget, Amazon is starting their Black Friday sales today, including the Fire HD 7 tablet for $20 off.
