Have you happened to browse through the lists of new books for Fall 2011? I just studied Amazon and the Barnes & Noble websites, and I am appalled. I did not see a single new book that interested me. I have never been so turned off by new offerings. I keep hoping that perhaps books to be published later this fall will appear and make me feel more faith and trust in book publishing, but so far, I want to GAG. Sorry for the all caps, there. I cannot hold back the extremity of my reaction.
Fortunately plenty of older books are demanding to be read! That encourages me quite a bit after the depressing journey I just took through the websites.
Please surrender your opinions about Fall Books 2011. I'm all ears!
