'Tis the day for internet browsing ... warn me if you see me shelving something you know is awful or is by one of those authors who interact weirdly/negatively with reviews.

 

*sigh* the turkey is cooking in the oven and starting to make the house smell so appetizing -- but it takes so long ...

Binge reading discussed on NPR's Marketplace by Nancy Koehn of the Harvard Business School
A Study in Silks - Emma Jane Holloway
A Study in Darkness - Emma Jane Holloway
A Study in Ashes - Emma Jane Holloway

And there's a corresponding article in the NY Times:

 

The practice of spacing an author’s books at least one year apart is gradually being discarded as publishers appeal to the same “must-know-now” impulse that drives binge viewing of shows like “House of Cards” and “Breaking Bad.”

 

 “Consumers want to be able to binge-read or binge-watch,” Christine Ball, the associate publisher of Dutton, said in an interview. “We wanted to give the consumers what they wanted in this case.”
 
. . . “I think the bottom line is that people are impatient,” said Susan Wasson, a longtime bookseller at an independent shop, Bookworks, in Albuquerque. “With the speed that life is going these days, people don’t want to wait longer for a sequel. I know I feel that way. When I like a book, I don’t want to wait a year for the sequel.”
 
The way they put this on Marketplace:
 

Goldfish have longer attention spans than Americans, and the publishing industry knows it

 

 

I don't like to think I have less attention capability than a fish, but I recently read The Baskerville Trilogy by Emma Jane Holloway and I did appreciate that all 3 books were released within months of each other. They're long books with complicated plots and reading them almost one after the other meant I didn't forget things, but unless the author is a speed writer she must have had to hold back the first book for years while she was writing the other two.
