What the Feck (WTF): eBook Settlement Refunds – What are you buying?

What the Feck (WTF): eBook Settlement Refunds – What are you buying?

What the Feck?! (WTF?!) is where we discuss bookish topics that had us thinking WTF?! while reading a book, talking to others in the book community or book news. Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   eBook Settlement Refunds – What are you buying?   Almost two weeks ago, I began receiving my settlement credits resulting from the legal settlement reached by the five publishers with the Department of Justice for eBook price fixing. If you’re unfamiliar with the case or the settlements, here’s a USA Today article that explains things pretty clearly.   I’ve heard from Amazon, Kobo and Barnes & Noble but haven’t yet received anything from Sony, which is where I’d spent quite a bit of money (35 eligible books!). But, […]

Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   Are you intimidated by an Audiobook’s Length?    Huh, thought this post was going to be about penis size, right? Get your mind out of the gutter! I’ll admit that I’ve not tried Outlander on audio because it’s 33 hours long but I think the biggest reason is the narrator has a british accent which is not one of my favorite accents to listen to on audio books. But yeah 33 hours is a little intimidated. Most audios I listen to are between 8-12 hours long. That’s about […]

WTF Special with Bleu from the Eternal Mates series by Felicity Heaton   It’s great to be here at The Book Nympho today as part of the Claimed by a Demon King Book Tour celebrating the release of the second book in my new Eternal Mates series of paranormal romance novels. Today, I’m going to be talking to Bleu, one of the hot dark elves in my Eternal Mates series, about what makes him go WTF? But before we get to the main event, I want to introduce myself. […]

Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   How Are You Choosing Your Titles These Days?       I don’t know about you but I feel like a kid in a candy store these days when it comes to books. There seems to be an explosion of interesting titles in all of the genres I read. I’m sure digital publishing has had a lot to do with the increase in books coming to market in the last two years. Whatever the phenomena, I’m getting overwhelmed! I’m now at the point where I’m paying a lot […]

What the Feck?! (WTF?!) is where we discuss bookish topics that had us thinking WTF?! while reading a book, talking to others in the book community or book news. Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   Make it Stop!    I’m sick of seeing ratings on books BEFORE they are available. I’m not talking about books that people are reading because they received an ARC. I’m talking about people rating (positive and negative) books before they are available. I’m talking as soon as a book is announced. I’m seeing it all over Goodreads. Ok so post a comment about how excited or pissed you are about an upcoming book. Fine. But don’t give it a rating. You’ve NOT READ it yet. Oh and authors, […]

What the Feck?! (WTF?!) is where we discuss bookish topics that had us thinking WTF?! while reading a book, talking to others in the book community or book news. Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   Wait…Haven’t I Seen That Cover Before?   A few months ago, I did a double take when I saw the cover of On Dublin Street with a different title. It took me a moment to figure out this was another book entirely. Two things puzzled me. 1. Why would you want to copy the cover of another book that was so identified with a popular title? 2. Why wouldn’t the author/publisher try to secure the rights of that cover now that it’s a success? I’ve since seen cover […]

Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   Movies to Books Seen any that would make great UF books/series?   I recently rented R.I.P.D from Redbox and I wasn’t expecting much but I was surprised by how much I liked it. If you haven’t seen it, think Men in Black but instead of hunting down aliens they wrangle the dead. While I was watching it I thought this would be a fun Urban Fantasy series to read. You’ve got partners that don’t want to work together. The old-timer (Roy played by Jeff Bridges) and the rookie (Nick […]

What the Feck (WTF): Character Descriptions: Do You Need the Details?

What the Feck?! (WTF?!) is where we discuss bookish topics that had us thinking WTF?! while reading a book, talking to others in the book community or book news. Stop by on Mondays for new topics.   Character Descriptions: Do You Need Them?   I was reading a blog post recently about character images, questioning whether readers had “go to” images for heroes and heroines. It got me thinking beyond that question. When I read a book, I give myself over completely to the writer. I leave it up to her/him to draw me into the plot, setting, characters and atmosphere. It’s up to author to captivate or abandon me by the story. I have a blank canvas and look forward to the writer, as […]
