EVOLUTION ON THE INTERNET

1. Change design, privacy policy, or general terms of use policy.

2. Apply changes, with or without input or new agreement from existing users (as per terms they previously agreed to).

3. Watch people lose their shit.

4. Watch some people leave.

5. A month passes, everything dies down, and people accept things as they are.

6. Some people return.

7. Rinse and repeat.

Help me find more crappy books with this guy on the cover: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/29... Also, Happy New Year.

So, today I learned of GR Bullies, and I see everyone's pantaloons are in a twist over it, but this is me (in the back):

LOL

Is that the scent of expensive lawyers' ink? These folks have never heard of defamation laws, huh?

I miss the days of the internet when there were fewer idiots online.

Why do some people rate books before they're published, according to their covers? Haven't they heard the saying about this?

Oh, Barnes & Noble, you aren't fooling anyone when you recommend those books in your newsletters as "Summer Reads" or "Beach Reads." Call it what it is: Lady Porn. You have nothing to lose.

Kate is 54% done with Grass (Arbai, #1)
Well, it's taken half the book for things to really start happening, but it's interesting for now.

I am LOVING Maberry's descriptions: "Dez, on the other hand, was pure backcountry Pennsylvania; a blue-eyed blonde who could have been a model for fitness equipment if not for what JT personally viewed as an overactive redneck gene."

Regretting this purchase. (I thought it would get better!) Stilted, amateurish writing. Stock characters. Where have all the good editors gone?

Kate is finished with Jellicoe Road
Lots of melodrama in this one--just short of kicking puppies to get a reader's reaction--but I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. Rounding up because I feel charitable.

Many have given this book a great rating. I'm trying to like it--and so far am not succeeding. At all. I'm somewhat reminded of how much I abhorred and laughed at Hinton's The Outsiders in middle school.

Not sure if I can finish this one.

After reading two very cliched novels in a row, I feel I should scrub thoroughly in a scalding hot shower.

Excepting one or two, this is how I feel about the books one can choose from for "Favorite Book of 2011": What the fuck?

One for the book nerds: http://www.smalldemons.com Who else wants to see this kind of data on Goodreads? It'd be interesting!

Whenever I see a dumb review now, I'm going to block that user. Ah, peace of mind.

Kate is finished with The Dark Mirror: Book One of the Bridei Chronicles
Good book, until the last few chapters. Not terrible, just peters out. Will read the next book in the series if the sample is good.

As good as this book is, when I pay for an ebook, I expect it to be well edited--free from missing commas and missing periods and random, dangling punctuation. Good work, Macmillan.

I'd forgotten how much woe Marillier likes to put her characters through.

Swear to God I'm going to start being a dick on those reviews that are liked and don't use capital letters. Fuck you, you dumb hicks. If you can't write a single, proper sentence (Is using the shift key that hard?), don't even bother telling us what you think about a whole damn novel.

Not sure about this one... Certainly willing to give it a try after Mistborn.

The downside to a good read is that it's difficult to find something you'll enjoy directly after it.
