Zombie Infestation

by LJ Bushman
Narrated by Anneliese Rennie
Annnnnnnd we are back with another review of a Spectrum produced audiobook! We really love how every book from Spectrum makes us expand our genre....spectrum! We wouldn't typically listen to a zombie sci-fi audiobook, but we ALWAYS enjoy pushing our listening boundaries. Zombie Infestation from LJ Bushman gives a fresh take on the decomposing genre that is zombie sci-fi. While we didn't put this on our shelf, we know that ANYONE that enjoys zombies and the sci-fi genre will LOVE this audiobook! **This is the audio from our latest BookTube.

Red Herring Book Titles

These titles make no sense!
Picture this: You're in the book store, browsing books, and a title catches your eye. It's mysterious, the cover is visually intriguing, you buy it based on those two reasons alone. Get it home, shred the receipt because you're gonna LOVE this book because the title was AWESOME! You dive into your new book only to find out that the title was completely misleading and has little to nothing to do with the actual plot of the story. Sure, you may still enjoy the book, but you can't get over how the title made you feel like all your book wishes had been answered only to have them dashed by the first chapter. These are what we are calling Red Herring Book Titles and it's what we are discussing in this week's brand new video! Let us know what some of YOUR red herring book titles have been!

Okay, so there's a war happening between libraries and publishers (Macmillan specifically) that more people need to be talking about. This WILL change how libraries function and how quickly YOU'LL be able to get your latest ebooks/audiobooks. A huge shout-out to @Kidsilkhaze for making US aware of this ridiculousness through her tweets! If you haven't heard about this issues, PLEASE check out these articles: The ALA article about the Macmillan model being released in November // http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2019/07/ala-denounces-new-macmillan-library-lending-model-urges-library-customers The article talking about Tor's experiment and how it impacted Macmillan's decision // https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/libraries/article/80758-after-tor-experiment-macmillan-expands-embargo-on-library-e-books.html
