Links of Interest (At Least to Me) 05/03/2009

You have to wonder what goes on in the heads of publishing firms sometimes. A week after closing teh Collins division in the US, HarperCollins announces a new one (It Books) focused:

on pop culture, sports, style and content derived from the Internet, like a planned collection of Twitter posts called “Twitter Wit.”


The wonderful Bookbrunch which has caused the equally wonderful Bookseller to raise its game has decided to start charging for its service, an inevitable move and one I welcome. There is nothing wrong with asking people to pay for your hard work. The rates seem pretty reasonable too:

Individual subscription prices are as follows:

3 months subscription – £30
6 months subscription – £55
12 months subscription – £99


Delia and Gordon go head to head for the top spot. I think you should just buy both as this amazon offer suggests and in these recessionary times, £24 is a damn good price.
