I used to really like Goodreads, in particular for its "new releases by authors on your shelf" monthly pages (must be logged in). Except those no longer actually show the new releases by the authors on my shelves. Is there some other site that will create those pages for me? I'd prefer it not by email but will accept it, and I'd like to be able to import the authors from GR. Any other way of seeing upcoming releases by authors I have read would be fine too.
I read, maybe in the late 90s, a science fiction book about parallel universes where at first it wasn't quite clear what was going on -- children used some kind of slang for them that the adults didn't understand. Some disaster had happened, I think, so only the children could travel through the multiple worlds. There was a plotline about the protagonist's brother (I think?) -- his wife had died in that world, so in the end he went from world to world trying to find one where she was alive. I believe the protagonist was female and also the author. There might have been something about a house or doors or rooms moving around, or I might be confusing it with another book. Any ideas?
I like anti-heroes. I like female protagonists. I would like books, tv shows, or movies (in that order) that are about anti-heroines. [more inside]
How does it affect an author’s first week sales if you preorder their book and it ships/is delivered before the release date? [more inside]
Subsequent to the recommendation for High Crimes in the recent Everest thread (which I have just started listening to on my commute, and which I am enjoying greatly), I am looking for more extreme sport or other dangerous stuff writing. Writing quality is of first importance. [more inside]
I'm looking for an app (iPhone/iTouch) to organise my reading lists. Must work offline. [more inside]
