Morning Coffee – 2 March 2020

Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.

  • Book publishing is an industry that that cannot (or will not) pay its employees a living wage, nor its authors.  (Another argument for self-publishing, I think.)
  • RJ Crayton asks whether Google Play Books is worth the bother
  • Rich Hollick extols the virtues of POD for the segment of the publishing industry stuck in the 19th century. 
  • Emily Temple hate-watches “You’ve Got Mail” for the first time (and probably the only time). 
  • Here’s a Twitter thread that rates all the book pile emojis
  • Some thought Google Books was defunct, but they were wrong – Harvard Library details their ongoing book scanning partnership with Google. 
  • Edwin Battisela explores the word play in “Alice in Wonderland”.
