Quote of the Day

From:

http://www.dailyfinance.com/story/media/publishing-and-perishing-the-book-industry-struggles-with-the-f/19490487/

A discussion of a BEA (the trade show formerly known as ABA) panel about a variety of things including e-books: royalties, whether enhancement would be a good idea, what would happen with pricing, etc.

The quote: "One of the only good things about being old is that I'm not going to have to deal with this for long." Esther Newberg, "literary agency ICM co-president".

I would say "words to live by", but then I would have to add, ahem or har de har har or something along those lines.

ETA: More (and better) coverage of the same forum.

Will snark later, perhaps.
