Some of you may have seen this machine – The Espresso Book Machine – It makes books on demand on site at book stores. Here is a video linking its process which I thought was very interesting. It could change the industry? Very cool!

Lets welcome him! He has a link for Science Fiction Appreciation month in April hosted at the blog Walker of Worlds. Science Fiction… fun stuff. We love Science Fiction.
Books on the Nightstand has a recent podcast interview where Ann Kingman chats with Holly LeCraw author of The Swimming Pool (title links to preview.) I love their podcasts and hold them personally responsible for a third of my teetering “want to read” book pile. Here is a link to win a copy of the book at Along the Way book blog. It ends April 28.
Book Browse one of my favorite places to find interesting books is offering one month free to family and friends, so go for it. The site offers insight into a variety of genres, authors, and interesting information surrounding the titles. It is also very inexpensive, running only about 2.50 per month. Highly recommended.

Sorry if I missed your special tidbit, and or giveaway. Sadly I only made it through a quarter of my main blog list on Google Reader. You will note some of it is old news and most of the blogs titles begin with letters A through E. Now I recall why I stopped doing links ups – it’s darn fiddly. Please link your interesting tidbits/giveaways in the comments section if you wish. Until the next link up post!
