Same Old Story ...

— Photo by TJ Sullivan —
Sorry to say it, but we all knew this was coming.

As reported a few minutes ago over at LA Observed, the Los Angeles Times appears to be in layoff mode again.

Same story on the other coast, at The New York Times.

Have to wonder how these publications can hope to retain subscribers while letting go the talented folks who produce the content.

Wishing the staffs of both newsrooms all the best ...

LA Today: Umbrella Watch 2009

-- Photo By TJ Sullivan -- Click to View Larger Version --

Disclosure: I shot this photo in December 2004 ... which is just about the last time we saw any rain in Los Angeles. But, if what the forecasts, and the skies, are saying is true, we're in for a storm.

285+ Book-Related Links

-- Photo By TJ Sullivan --
As promised, I have completed my search for book-related blogs and Web sites. All 285 of the sites listed here have been confirmed as active, meaning they've all featured fresh content in the past 30 days, or so. Of course, this is by no means a complete list. If you've got a few book clubs, book blogs, and/or book-related Web sites to suggest, send them along and I'll gladly append the list.

Enjoy ...
