Critical Linking: March 21, 2013

 

As exciting and new as e-books are, print is still 75 percent of the book market. And that’s way too much to leave on the table.

One nice thing about being a reader rather than an author or publisher or bookseller is that you get to sit back and watch what happens.

At first glance
As a society (or, “as a nation”)
Observers
TK is not alone
Pundits say (or “Critics say”)
The American people (unless in a quote)
The narrative (unless referring to a style of writing)
Probe (as substitute for “investigation”)
A rare window (unless we’re talking about a real window that is in fact rare)
Begs the question (unless used properly – and so rarely used properly that not worth it)
Be that as it may

Words and phrases that are forbidden in The Washington Post.

One thing is for certain, without a stronger dedication to books and reading, society will be all the poorer for it in the long run.

Wait, Chicken Little is now a publishing pundit?
