My only newsletter recommendation for 2011
I’ve discussed in a previous post how these days I primarily use Twitter as a news source. I’ve cut back on my subscriptions and tend to send those to a secondary account for checking at a later date. One of the few newsletters that make it into my primary account is FutureBook, the ‘digital dispatch’ of theBookseller.com. FutureBook describe themselves as a “website dedicated to discussing how the digital revolution will re-shape publishing in the 21st Century.” If you want to understand what they are about then read their Manifesto! Their weekly newsletter always gives me an interesting perspective from Philip Jones, deputy editor of The Bookseller as well as links to interesting blog posts. . FutureBook has built up an extensive list of bloggers and that network gives you access to a depth and breadth of content. A link to various subscription options is here.
Digital Down Under
As a follower on Twitter and a reader of their blog I was very pleased to be asked to write a blog post for them on Australian Digital Publishing. A link to the post is here and I’d be interested in your feedback in the comments section below. I have heard that I should have included information on Collins Booksellers being powered by Kobo (true, it’s hard to mention everything) but I hope it’s fairly comprehensive.
