So What Do You Think About Amazon’s Kindle Lending Program By Carolyn Howard-Johnson

So What Do You Think About Amazon’s Kindle Lending Program By Carolyn Howard-Johnson

I often use a “Q&A a la Ann Landers” format as part of my SharingwithWriters newsletter.

Extravaganza Take-Aways from a First-Timer by Sierra Rakes
