Let’s take a look back at the week that was . . .
In November comes the last great big push of new titles. Publishers want to get them out there before everyone gets busy with the holidays and things get lost in the shuffle. 2014 has been an exceptional year to be a reader -somanybooks! – and these November titles do not disappoint.

So, should you spend $199 for the Voyage? As a dedicated digital reader, I’m happy with my purchase. I didn’t “need” it any more than someone needs the newest smartphone or tablet. Basic ereaders work very well, and there are lots of reasons someone might prefer a (similarly priced) high end e-ink reader from Kobo or Onyx. For me, it’s the high resolution, the even and automatic lighting, and the fit and finish that seal the deal. I think $199 is a little too high, but Amazon is backordered on Voyages until early to mid December, so it seems the demand for a premium ereader exists regardless of price.

But that’s what gifs and memes and internet comics are for. To be honest, I’m not certain I even know how to write a thing anymore without resorting to captioned pictures of sloths. I’m also not sure if I mean ‘anymore’ or ‘any more’ in that context. I’VE BEEN OUT OF SCHOOL FOR A LONG TIME.
In case you, too, have been out of school for a long time and find your wordy bits failing you, I’ve compiled a pile of internet to help you say what you mean about the book in your hands.
