Happy Friday!

Publisher's Weekly linked an article yesterday on Oyster, a start-up aiming to be "the Netflix of books." My first thought was: a subscription book service--try the library! But realistically, I have only been able to read a few e-books from my public library; lack of selection, long waiting lists and tech issues have prevented me from borrowing e-books. In fact, my Nook is pretty dusty given I can borrow print books much more easily.

What do you think? Would you use a subscription service for e-books? For me, it would depend on the cost and what format it's available on--only smartphone? A tablet? Existing e-reader?

Starting Monday, I'll post as part of the Nineties Blogfest, a fun pop-culture nostalgia extravaganza hosted by Dave Wrote This. You can still sign up!

My focus will be music and possibly a TV show or two from each year. Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. Fun idea for a blogfest. I'll check it out.

  2. This sounds like so much fun! Can't wait to see what you post and experience a trip down memory lane. :)

  3. Without a doubt, I probably would, but realistically I don't use my e-library enough as it is. So free first, subscription next.

  4. Thanks for the reminder about the blogfest!

  5. I'm so tempted to try doing that blogfest...but I've been super busy...but it sounds like fun. Decisions, decisions!

  6. Thanks for plugging the blogfest. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
