The comments are being really weird for me, is this happening to anyone else? My comment keeps disappearing and re-appearing.

On Why Don't Ebooks Have In-book Ads? Because We Don't Read Enough

Before I make my comments I'll be honest that I've only read Nicole's article, not the Buzzfeed one (yet!) so sorry if I'm re-covering ground. 1. I love The Goldfinch AAF, please all go finish it. 2. My Kindle purchased in 2012 has the ads in the screensavers and banners, so that's not totally new. 3. Track your book stats through a social media site like Goodreads! 4. The Book Riot podcast covered a story about product placement in ebooks: here and here and it is oh, so hilarious. Please enjoy.

On How "Women's Television" Does Money

"Gilmore Girls" is an hour-long show. Would it really be considered a sitcom?

On Living Alone

This is making me realize how rarely I use any sort of napkin with meals at home (usually just wash my hands afterward) and how that maybe makes me a slob?

On Cops

@dromeda ah I kind of had the same thought re: Kima. Good cop, not a great person. She's about the same to her family as McNulty is to his... Lester and that dancer though ugghhh the creeps. The *best* example of being a good cop and a good person is probably Bunny Colvin.
