Morning Coffee – 16 February 2018

Morning Coffee - 16 February 2018 Morning Coffee

Here are a few stories to read this morning.

  1. Hugh Howey: Self-publishing is the future — and great for writers (Salon.com)
  2. The entirely unnecessary demise of Barnes & Noble (Brain Fuzzies)
  3. Survey: 80% of Authors Who Advertised on Facebook Said It Failed (Writing for a Living)

About Nate Hoffelder (10017 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. That Hugh Howey article is five yers old. Why are you running it now?

  2. Wow. I went to read the salon dot com article and was confronted with 2 options:
    1. Allow ads.
    2. Block ads by allowing Salon to use your unused computing power.

    Salon seriously wants me to let them have access to my computer like that? Never gonna happen. I’m glad the articles that old. LOL

    • I had no problem reading the article. I read Salon daily and have not been confronted with any requests to allow ads or use my computer’s surplus capacity. I use Firefox on a 2016 MacBook.

  3. I see the B&N one had to do a couple anti-Amazon digs – even though they showed more than enough evidence that B&N is doing it to themselves.
