Quotation of the Day

Putting Food & Books on the Table

“I was once having dinner with an international group, and an American was complaining about the price of books in France. ‘Yes,’ said a Frenchman. ‘We have this silly theory in France that our authors should be able to eat.’ We don’t know what the future of publishing is, but we know that the future for every writer requires food. And we know that one way to help writers eat is to encourage people to buy good books.”

–Tom Lutz, editor-in-chief of the Los Angeles Review of Books, in his essay “Future Tense.”

This is a quote from today’s Shelf Awareness. I could not pass up the chance to share Mr. Lutz’s timely message. Link up and read his complete essay.

– Bookin’ with Sunny
