Cruel hoax? Sounds a little strong. Most of the books NOT self published never make it, either. All about marketing, both for trad and digi books.

On the "L," e-books change spy game: Mapping what a city reads through public transportation
Big Cities, Guys Reading, Bus, Public Transportation, E Book Change, Reading Book, Cities Reading, Maps, Columns
Guy reads book on public transport to isolate himself, but wants to be social about it...film at 11.
Strange as it sounds, reading a book while sitting on public transportation may be what I like best about living in a big city. I would even go as far as to say reading on a train or bus is what urban dwelling is about, a near perfect illustration of how living in a city often means being simultaneously public and anonymous, surrounded by strangers at exactly the moment you just want to be left alone.

Book jacket for THE BAD SEED
The Bad Seed (Novel 1954) by William March. What happens to ordinary families whose child serial killer is born? The question at the center of March's classic thriller. Book became million–copy bestseller, a successful Broadway show, - a Warner Brothers film. The spine–tingling tale of little Rhoda Penmark had a tremendous impact on the thriller genre and generated a whole perdurable crop of creepy kids. Today, BS remains masterpiece of suspense - chilling, intelligent, timely as ever before.

In 1987, a small Dallas-based company launched a floppy disk magazine that was supposed to be a grand experiment in the future of the medium. At $19.95 an issue, The New Aladdin was a bi-monthly general-interest magazine that hoped to give readers an entirely new kind of interactive experience; complete with animated graphics, computer games, music, puzzles, and feature stories that allowed you to ask questions.

Sergey Brin on the threat to the Open Internet. Interesting how bloggers/experts are hitting at him for making a self-serving argument that open web (rather than walled gardens) is a good thing. Sure, Google will benefit, as it will be able to get more relevant searches. But so will users.
Google co-founder is worried about the future of a free internet. You should be worried too.
Seregey gets cold feet while looking at the competition ... while doing so it's a pity he only presents a shallow valuation of the business.

Stephen King, King Ebook, Ebook Release
E-books - the infrastructure has not yet caught up with the technology. So frustrating that publishers are limiting the ebook release to libraries. Also, the new Stephen King ebook is $25...it doesn't make sense in light of publishing costs, or lack thereof.
