And, while we’re at it, what are your favorite comments?
I am seriously entertaining the idea of collecting my best posts and trying to publish them as a book.
I’d be interested in any thoughts you have on the general topic, as well as specific recommendations for posts to reprint. If comments are an indication of interest in a post, then I have a good starting list here:
I also collected several of what I thought were some of my better introductory posts here:
The other introductory posts on the side bar also are key starting points.
I have no idea whether this attempt to bridge very different media will work. Obviously certain features of the blog, like the hyperlinks, are hard to capture in a book — but then I would simply direct people in the book who were interested in the original sources to the blog (where I’d have them all in one place). I’m quite certain such a book would not be a big moneymaker since none of my books have been — [Note to self: Get over it!] — indeed, on a income per hour basis, book-writing doesn’t pay close to the minimum wage.
Anyway, the goal would be to create something that is permanent and desirable — and that serves as a vehicle for getting the word out on the blog to a different audience.
Suggestions are welcome!
