No posts, virulent or otherwise, for a little while, as I will be on the road with the girl and away from my computer.

And a bit of clarification on the Oprah post. I admire Oprah. I enjoyed many of her picks. I think she's a force for good in the world and I agree with MJ Rose that having people reading -- and talking about books and writers with each other, and in front of their kids -- is always, always a good thing.

I just don't agree that reviving the book club is going to have the kind of effect on the publishing landscape that writers over at Word of Mouth wish it would. I think it's up to writers -- and agents, and publishers -- to figure out how to help readers navigate the increasingly crowded literary landscape and find books that they'll love, rather than pinning our hopes on some outside agent to make the connection for us.
