Bad News: I didn't win Maggie's signed cool book.
Good News: I spammed the internet with a favourite author.
Better News: I did win a Lysol Soap Dispenser
Great News: I can still buy Maggie's book from Fountain Books! And she'll still sign!
I was also catching up on Good Reads.com, of course to
enter another book-giveaway-contest. I have low hopes because I'm not
active on GoodReads. I used to .. want to be.
A) It's slow.
B) I'm slow.
C) Waiting wastes precious moments I can be reading
D) I'm a technophobe. Or snob?
I didn't like the idea of goodreads.com because it was on the
internet. The internet is inherently evil and pushes things to the next
level of technology. I dislike technology because I don't believe
computers are more efficient than humans. I think Human Err is easier to
fix, or eliminate.
I didn't say I was logical. :)
But what some fantastic author DID point out to me about goodreads.com
is that, if authors use the site, then they can hear our feedback. I
always thought of it as a personal log of all the books and things I've
read (as if my sagging bookshelf doesn't already) and recommendations
for people who read similiar books as me.
So now, I'm going to TRY -- TRY SO HARD -- to give legit, honest
and critical feedback. I'm inclined to say OMG I LOVE IT READ IT READ
IT HARD AND FAST OMG! but... really.
That dosen't help. Does it?
