10 Essential Goodreads Tips For Book Nerds

10 Essential Goodreads Tips For Book Nerds | Litteris | Scoop.it
The nicer word is a “bibliophile”. But I don’t care; being called a book nerd is just fine. The only way to really hurt our species is to throw book spoilers at us.

O Steampunk no Brasil

O Steampunk no Brasil | Litteris | Scoop.it

O Brasil tem se mostrado um dos maiores entusiastas do gênero steampunk. Mas por aqui existe uma identidade nacional muito forte que faz o gênero se expandir de forma a valorizar a cultura nacional e a história do país.

Em primeiro lugar o Brasil criou as Lojas ou Conselhos, grupos regionais divididos por estados ou cidades e que apoiam o desenvolvimento da cultura steampunk na região.

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Litteris | Scoop.it

With iPads, once we begin thinking beyond the confines of a page, anything is possible. Consider the video below created several years ago by two of my students. First they wrote plot summaries. Then they wrote character sketches. From there, they crafted paragraphs about theme, tying the visual and auditory elements of their videos back to the books. Finally, they created storyboards and bibliographies before producing and publishing their final product.

Worth taking a look at.  How many times have you heard people ask what their students can "do" on the ipad to submit their work.  This will walk you through using the ipad for writing.

The Evolution of e-publishing: Why India has lagged behind in adapting eBooks - Lifestyle - dna

The Evolution of e-publishing: Why India has lagged behind in adapting eBooks - Lifestyle -  dna | Litteris | Scoop.it

How close is India to this inflection point from where the local market for eBooks can be expected to really take off? Around 18-24 months, feels Santanu Chowdhury, CEO of Swiftboox, a store that specialises in ebooks in Indian regional languages. VK Karthika, publisher and chief editor, HarperCollins India, agrees: “When eBooks first started to come in, I had thought they would take 10 years to reach India; then last year, when we started working on our ebooks programme, I thought it would be five years. Now I think it will take about two years.”

That India has a lot of potential is something everyone in publishing  agrees upon. “India is the third largest market for English books,” says Amazon India’s spokesperson. “A high propensity for reading, coupled with growth in literacy, increasing Internet penetration, Internet-enabled devices and a rapid growth of middle class population with increasing disposable income make it a very promising market.” No wonder then that everyone — publishers, stores (both online and brick-and-mortar) and manufacturers of eBook reader devices and apps — is hurrying to grab an early-mover advantage in the eBooks space.

… (provavelmente) estará mentindo

Você assistiu 2001, não é a Isa e acha que entendeu, é isso? Não me entenda mal, não estou de forma alguma tentando diminuir o filme. Kubrick criou uma obra belíssima. O que poucos sabem é que, ao assistir apenas o filme, estão apenas com metade da genialidade. Stanley Kubrick e Arthur C Clarke fizeram, em paralelo, um livro e o roteiro do filme.
