Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast

53. Reading Devices, Plus a Quiz!

Sarah and Jane are back together, this week answering a reader letter from Kim who asks about what we read on, and how we organize our books. Sarah also crafted a horribly devious quiz for Jane, who does appallingly well. Then, we talk about what we're reading.

Here are the books we talked about during this episode:


Book On the island tracy Garvis-Greaves Book Here Without You - Tammara Webber  Book Trust in Me by Dee Tenorio

Book Talking Dirty with the CEO - Jackie Ashenden Book Never Deal with Dragons - Lorenda Christensen Book Ransom - Julie Garwood

Book The Bride - Julie Garwood Book Big Girl Panties - Stephanie Evanovich

Our music is provided by Sassy Outwater. This podcast features “Celtic Frock” by a UK duo called Deviations Project, which features producer Dave Williams and violinist Oliver Lewis – they have their own Wikipedia page. This is from their album Ivory Bow

You can find Deviations Project on iTunes, Amazon, or wherever music is sold.

    I admire Jane’s use of automation to automatically add all books to Calibre and convert them to mobi. But that would drive me loopy. Not the ease of converting all the books (in my case to ePub), but I HAVE to correct the metadata on all of my books. It amazes me still how many books come with poor/missing metadata. Or how when I buy a Kindle book the author name is often backwards (I have Calibre set to display as first name last name and send to my device/authorsort as last name, first name). Not to mention the way some names appear in all capitals *shudder*

    Plus the fact that my Sony creates collections based on tags and authors/publishers always differ on how they tag books. I shudder to think how many collections I would have if I did not make my library adhere to my metadata standards.

    I also love the eInk screen on my Sony and hope dedicated readers with eInk do not go away.

    We were talking about series vs stand-alone in the other thread and I think Dee Tenorio’s Trust in Me is a good example. I read it as a standalone and though I agree with the emotional conflict being forced, I still enjoyed it. But I haven’t read the other books and seen the heroine behaving any differently so I think reading this book first allowed me to enjoy it in a way that fans of the series would not. (FTR I have since purchased the other books in the series, but haven’t read them yet).

    Google Books has an app now that you can upload your own ebooks (epub) and it syncs what page you’re at across any device that uses the app.

    Nice thing, is that you upload them yourself, so you can buy the books wherever you want.
