Harper Collins Failing Everyone

Harper Collins just announced to the libraries carrying their e-books that after 26 “lendings”, the book agreement with them is null and void. Hence, the free library is required to buy the same book again. Even worse, Macmillan and Simon & Schuster do not even allow libraries any e-books from their catalogs.

The nerve and gall of that failing industry still boggles the mind. Publishing companies are grasping at straws to keep their heads above water, but sink they will and soon. Willful disregard for integrity and fair treatment of their writers, authors and ancillary help that keep them afloat is coming back to bite them in the butt.

This greedy grabby irresponsible behavior shows publishers’ lack of vision for the future. E-books are here to stay but Harper Collins, Macmillan with Simon & Schuster, will soon be extinct like the dinosaurs that they are.

But, you want to make sure that when your precious little one loses a tooth, the bad witch does not get hold of it and use it in her nasty magic. The tooth is hidden under the pillow in a little pouch which only the parents know about and they retrieve it in the middle of the night and replace it with a coin. [Read more…]
