Reporting from the "Shameless Commerce Division" today. I have no financial stake in any of what follows. I just like to find good freebies and pass them on.
Powells Books puts out a great cyber newsletter. It's always a treat to see it in the inbox. You can subscribe at the main site or simply access the latest newsletter there. They include interviews with authors, original essays by interesting writers, and the continuing story of Fup, the bookstore cat. Of course, selling products is their bottom line, but they include such great content. It's one of the Web's great freebies.
But wait, there's more: Powell's has recently added a Book Blog. They promise interesting content, as well as well-known guest bloggers. I've added it to my blog roll. Check it out.
