A good book offers an escape from every day problems.
A brutal economy isn’t helping much in the writing industry. Lately, I’ve been reading several posts on our MSA site about the subject. I believe everyone looks forward to that little glimmer of light where the economy’s concerned, hoping that we’ll get a breakthrough soon.
I’m surprised we haven’t had more publishing houses go under. A year or so ago, there were several that closed within weeks of each other. That was devastating to quite a few authors. It seemed like a rippling effect.
Now that we have a new president and he’s working with a stimulus package to stir the economy, let’s hope his plan works. It would be wonderful to put a book out there and have a hit, making a lot of money in sales.
To me, reading a book takes me away from everyday problems. While reading, it’s easy to forget the bad economy and skyrocketing prices at the grocery stores and gasoline pumps as you enter the fantasy world for a short time. Let’s hope that e-book readers feel the same way even with a bad economy and the book sales surge.
Do others reading this blog forget your every day problems while reading a good book?
Be sure and look for my book Angel in Blue.
